A black Maserati with 500 horses,
your own private course to explore the G forces,
sushi prepared by our live-in itame
with tiki drinks chased by the finest iced coffee,
a rocket-powered bike you could ride down the trail,
or how 'bout a pirate ship under full sail?
We'd head for our own secret island
where the waters are blue,
and I'd buy this for you…

'Cause these things would be nice,
but I can't pay the price,
so this song will have to suffice.
This song will have to suffice.

That place with some acreage outside of the city
with a four-car garage and our own little brewery,
windmills like flowers in bloom on the hilltop,
and top-secret projects locked up in the workshop.
We could build drones in our lab, me and you,
and chase all the coyotes that sing to the moon,
maybe a jetpack collection,
we'd fly one or two,
and I'd buy them for you…

And all of these things,
if I had the means,
I would shower you with them;
the wants of your dreams.
I would build you a palace
in a cool paradise,
but this song will just
have to suffice.

I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
