New Music lyrics

New Music

FATHER:
Where have I been?
How did we change,
Caught in this strange
New music?
Say,
Was I away too long?

MOTHER:
Just like that tune,
Simple and clear,
I've come to hear
New music.

FATHER:
New music.

Why,
Why can't you hear the song?

YOUNGER BROTHER:
His fingers stoke those keys,
And every note says "Please",
And every chord says "Turn my way."

MOTHER, FATHER:
I thought I knew
What love was but these lovers play...

MOTHER, FATHER, YOUNGER BROTHER:
New music!
Haunting me,
And somehow taunting me-
My love was never half as true.

FATHER:
And I as myself,
Why can't I sing it too?

WORKERS, NEIGHBORS:
His fingers stoke those keys,
And every note says "Please",
And every chord says "Turn my way."

WORKERS, NEIGHBORS, FAMILY:
I thought I knew
What love was
but these lovers play
New music!

ALL:
Haunting me,
And somehow taunting me-
My love was
Never half as true.

COALHOUSE:
Sarah, my life has changed.
Sarah, you've got to see.
Sarah, we got a son!
Sarah, come down to me...

SARAH:
You and your music
Singing deep in me,
Making nice to me,
Saying something so new-

COALHOUSE:
New

SARAH:
Changing everything,
Meaning everything,

COALHOUSE:
Music

SARAH:
Calling my heart to you...

COALHOUSE:
All for you, girl.
You, Sarah.

SARAH:
Play that melody,
Your sweet melody,
Calling my heart to you.

COALHOUSE:
You.

ALL (except Coalhouse & Sarah):
Just like that tune,
Simple and clear,
I've come to hear
New music-
Breaking my heart,
Op'ning a door,
Chamging the world!
New music!
I'll
Hear it forevermore!
