New Music Lyrics


by . From Ragtime.


[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!
