U-la-la-la and la-di-da and such she singed along

My lover used songs the same way other people use 

Sipsmith London Dry gin and pineapple haze to manipulate their emotions and raise their spirits

Or get some inspiration, he sang nursery rhymes and catholic hymns

Pop hits and rock ballads, he played the piano and stroke

His ancient wooden guitar in the evenings, 

Like in that strawberry colored sky Tuesday afternoon

When we both realised music leaves no room for people feeling lost

And too tangled in their own strings.
