A New Brain - The Music Still Plays On Lyrics

1998 Off-Broadway musical by William Finn
A New Brain the Musical - The Music Still Plays On Lyrics


I look damn good in a hat
My black dress hides the fact
I don't want sympathy
He was here and now he's gone
The music still plays on
I see the keys
And I freeze
No surprise
This is how he
Thinks I'll be
When he dies

I'll be gracious and aloof
Or I'll climb on the roof
Shouting obscenities
He was here and now he's gone
The music still plays on

The music still plays on
And on and on and on
Loud and fast and clear
The music still plays on
And on and on and on
Even though you're not here
My dear

Married too young
I was brash, I was bold
Married too young
And divorced far too old

Husband sleeker than a horse
He rears and flies off course
I liked his pedigree
Love is here and then it's gone
The music still plays on

The music still plays on
And on and on and on
As my men depart
The music still plays on
And on and on and on
Transmitted through my foolish heart

So, stay away
I'm okay, I'm ahead
What came to pass
Once and as one is dead

Love is stupid and it bleeds
It satisfies my needs
I think it's wonderful
Once it was wonderful
Love is here and then it's gone
The music still plays on
They were here and now their gone
The music still plays on
And on and on
