Lyrics:

Piano keys don't please me
They're so dark and it's so easy to forgive them
And violins still scream 
From every room you've ever passed your presence through

But if you hang 'round here much longer
You'll go crazy with the wonder of it all
For love with the madman is a sad affair
A long, long way to fall

My orchestras have waited 
They've been baited by the baton you conducted
And every beat's a heartbeat 
In this symphony of trouble and confusion

But if you hang 'round here much longer
You'll go crazy with the wonder of it all
For love with the madman is a sad affair
Because...

Music and lyrics by Bill Nelson
