Brenda Russell – Piano In The Dark lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I find myself watching the time
I never think about all the funny things you said
I feel like it's dead
Where is it leading me now

[Verse 2]
I turn around in the still of the room
Knowing this is when I'm gonna make my move
Can't wait any longer
And I'm feeling stronger but oh

[Hook]
Just as I walk through the door (Just a little more time)
I can feel your emotion (Can't you feel your emotion)
It's pullin' me back (Just a little more time)
Back to love you

[Bridge]
I know I'm caught up in the middle
I cry just a little
When I think of letting go
Oh no, gave up on the riddle
I cry just a little
When he plays piano in the dark

[Verse 3]
He holds me close like a thief of the heart (...thief of the heart)
He plays a melody
Born to tear me all apart
The silence is broken
And no words are spoken but oh

[Hook]
Just as I walk through the door (Just a little more time)
I can feel your emotion, yeah, yeah (Can't you feel your emotion)
It's pullin' me back (Just a little more time)
Back to love you

[Chorus]
I know I'm caught up in the middle
I cry just a little
When I think of letting go
Oh no, gave up on the riddle
I cry just a little
When he plays piano in the dark

[Bridge]
Oh, The silence is broken
And no words are spoken but oh

[Hook]
Just as I walk through the door (Just a little more time)
I can feel your emotion (Can't you feel your emotion)
Oh baby, pullin' me back (Just a little more time)
Back to love you

[Chorus]
I know I'm caught up in the middle
I cry just a little
When I think of letting go
Oh no, gave up on the riddle
I cry just a little
Oh..i cry,i cry..

[Chorus]
I know I'm caught up in the middle
I cry just a little
When I think of letting go
Oh no, gave up on the riddle
I cry just a little
When he plays piano in the dark

[Outro]

    She's the piano he plays in the dark. For whatever the reason, the emotional relationship is on the brink. Even though, the physical one still has a lot of power over her. They know each others bodies and that is what is being used to keep her there. She knows that she needs to leave the relationship.

    Addressing comment made march 20, 2: 37am. I totally agree with you. As I read through the lyrics and the other posts, I could see where each of you were coming from. But, there was just something missing. I couldn't get to the emotional connection of this song. As I read through your post, it hit me like a ton of bricks! She's still in love but trying to deny it. This so she can survive the pain of a broken releationship and try to move on. Though he has another woman on the side that he feels great passion for, he still has a strong emotional attachment which gives the first woman hope their relationship can be salvaged. Then he's gone again. The feelings of love die again, along with a little piece of her.
    I may be reading into this a bit. I'm still healing myself after breaking up with my wife of 23 years. In the end, it was her playing the piano in the dark and me trying to hold on to. Nothing.

    A three way relationship her him and another. When they are together they have fun and she feels alive but she feels so empty now alone waiting knowing he is being drawn back to another. She knows she is ot a person who can be in a 3 way she cry only little when thinks of letting go. Caught in the middle. S** is the piano he plays in the dark. Silence is broken because they both know that this can't go on he in love with the other but he dose care deeply for her. , that emotion pulls her back to love him. Piano in the dark are also the unspoken emotion. Things have changed they both know it. So she moving on and crys just a little.
