Piano Playing Fingers

lyrics

Love has come and the time for killing is gone
Piano playing fingers are coming to diffuse the bomb
Lay your arms down on the ground
Piano playing fingers are coming to turn you on
Gentle hands hold the key to understand
Love has come & it's already been too long
Gentle hands hold the key to understand
Love has come & it's already been too long
It's already been too long
Mother earth never looked more absurd
Is it memory who lingers or the fear of what's to come?
Father time at eleven fifty nine
Got a five o'clock shadow hanging over everyone
Gentle hands hold the key to understand
Love has come & it's already been too long
Gentle hands hold the key to understand
Love has come & it's already been too long
It's already been too long
Judgment come and the judge & the jury are gone
Is the executioner playing to same old song?
I just can't wait
Tomorrow might be too late
The day after tomorrow I still want to have my fun
Gentle hands hold the key to understand
Love has come & it's already been too long
Gentle hands hold the key to understand
Love has come & it's already been too long
It's already been too long
Love has come and the time for killing is gone
Piano playing fingers are coming to diffuse the bomb
Lay your arms down on the ground
Piano playing fingers are coming to turn you on
Gentle hands hold the key to understand
Love has come & it's already been too long
Gentle hands hold the key to understand
Love has come & it's already been too long
It's already been too long
