Second Hand White Baby Grand

 
Smash Cast ft. Megan Hilty Lyrics
Smash Soundtrack Musical, 2012
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Second Hand White Baby Grand My mother bought it secondhand from a silent movie star
It was out of tune but still I learned to play
And with each note we both would smile forgetting who we are
And all the pain would simply fly away

Something secondhand and broken still can make a pretty sound
Even if it doesn't have a place to live
Oh, the words were left unspoken when my momma came around
But that Secondhand White Baby Grand still had something beautiful to give

Through missing keys and broken strings the music was our own
Until the day we said our last goodbyes
The baby grand was sent away, a child all alone, to pray somebody else would realize
That something secondhand and broken still can make a pretty sound
Even if it doesn't have a place to live
Oh. the words are still unspoken now that momma's not around
But that Secondhand White Baby Grand still has something beautiful to give

For many years the music had to roam

Until we found a way to find a home.

So now I wake up every day and see her standing there.

Just waiting for a partner to compose

And I wish my mother still could hear

That sound beyond compare

I'll play her song till everybody knows.

That something secondhand and broken still can make a pretty sound
Don't we all deserve a family room to live
Oh. the words can't stay unspoken until everyone has found
That Secondhand White Baby Grand that still has something beautiful to give.

I still have something beautiful to give.
