Hotelier, The - Piano Player Lyrics

Inside your room there's 40 few
Remaining figures of new moons
To curve around your axle heart
In hopes that something new will start.
They're winding down, they're closing ranks
To rest another 30 days.
You lay and watch them wax and glow.
You hold them in your hand and let them go.

A kid half my age, baby's breath and meadow sage
Clutched in her hands like trophy game,
Just like the wild world was tame,
Was granted home and tender care
Into an awkward piece of ware
Three-quarters full or quarter-drained
And both adversely sure how long they will sustain.

My eyes greet hers and hers do mine
And then the room becomes her shrine.
An older ma'am sets herself straight
And then she smiles with 88 remembered loves
And morning suns until her woven was sung.
Her fingers dropped like falling rain.
The entire room awash with the sustain.

You always said that you don't dance
But then a heel turn to a shadow stance.
I'm wrung like sodden cloth.
And the autumn leaves turn over across your floor,
Into the hall and I've declined into a crawl
And you decompress and fall away but
This floor is raised on beams of trust
And there's room enough for both of us so stay. Sustain.

Inside your room there's 40 few
Remaining figures of new moons
To curve around your axle heart
In hopes that something new will start.
The things you grow are set to die.
You cling to them with knuckles white.
So wind me up, damper to floor
And I don't know if I know love no more.

  2. domtron88

    This is awesome!!! I also like to guess where they are at in each scene ;)

  3. ItsNapkins

    The editing to this song is fucking vibe and a half. I love it.

  4. Lorenz Meyn

    bit random but anyone got an idea of how to get these kinda video effects? Like the transitions and such

  5. Biotic Storm

    one of the best songs my ears have been blessed to hear

  6. Schwanz Kacka

    After a long peroid of listening to extreme metal, this is a good twist! I love the feeling I get listening to this

  7. Josh Stanton

    This song is the sound of cross country roadtrips.

  8. Naher1mne1utub

    I don't know why I'm crying.


    I'd give you my shoulder, but I too am crying

  9. th3FT pUnK

    I've been jamming it for the last year still sounds so fresh

  10. David Mitchell-Baker

    But this floor is raised on beams of trust and there's room enough for the both of us, so stay

  11. Dominik Breuherr

    Listened to it a hundred times and still can't figure out what this song culd be about. What do you think guys, what's this song about?

    Domi Breu sustain

  12. Elgin Coates

    Glad to see that the band who did the Pete and Pete title song are still putting out music.

  13. tarrynlee mac

  14. Stefarooh

    Lead singers voice reminds me of a mash-up of Michael Stipe and Adam Duritz

  15. ItsAlwaysRainingInWa

    Has anyone listened to this oon Spotify? The intro does this thing where it gets hella quiet and then slams back up to full volume when the first verse kicks in, but it seems completely absent from this video. Does the CD do the same thing? I thought it was cool and fit artistically

  16. King Meatball


  17. Mary Elizabeth Johnson

  18. mynamesjudge
