Out of the blue..
you come again..
my mistress..
at times my only true friend..
always there when I need a shoulder to lean on..
when they ground is too rocky to tread upon..

You save me..
music my mistress..
You take me away..
to a safer place,,
where peace and tranquility lay..

My feet get so weary..
I cant carry on..
but yet you come through..
with the words of a song..

You save me..
Music my mistress..
You take me away..
to a safer place....
where peace and tranquility lay..

dont know hoiw you do it..
but somehow..
you always come through..
to take me from where clouds are grey..
To a place where blue skys..
become part of my day..

when the future gets hazy..
when life becomes crazy..
You show me love...
you show me faith..
You lead the way..
When I feel like my path in life has gone astray..

You save me..
Music my mistress..
You take me away..
to a safer place....
where peace and tranquility lay..
