Sweetbox – Piano In The Dark lyrics

Verse 1:

Daddy always said
These are the 88 keys to pain
And daddy always said
Rinse down the hurt before it stains
But daddy never said that after this not much remains
If only he told her to play her life instead of shame


When the lights go down
And the world's asleep
She plays piano in the dark
Piano in the dark
She's haunted by a whiskey melody
When she plays piano in the dark
Piano in the dark

Verse 2:

No one understands
These are her 88 keys to pain (oooh...)
And no one ever sees her
Rinse down the hurt before it stains (mmm hmmm...)
But now she's finally realized
Not much of her remains (oh oh oh oh)
If only she knew how to play her life like she plays her shame (oh...)

*Repeat chorus*

Daddy always said these are the 88 keys to pain...

Oooh... Yes...
Oh huh...
88 (88 keys to pain)
88 (88 keys to shame)
88 (Oh...)
Oh...(that's all she has)

*Repeat chorus*

*Repeat chorus*

She plays in the dark...
