A brief lyric

I’m writing a song
And the chords have your scent on them
Compelling and sublime
But the lyrics don’t match and I’m
Lost for words again
But I feel you in fingering the strings
I taste you in inadequate words
I hear you in the harmony
I hear in you the harmony

It sounds better in my head
All the notes I cannot reach
In some other voice I do not have
That I think you lent to me
I feel you in the fingering the strings
I taste you in inadequate words
I hear you in the harmony
I hear in you the harmony

I think I’m out of tune
I’ve forgotten all the lines
Like a promise lost in minutes
But still imagined in my mind
I feel you in the fingering the strings
I taste you in inadequate words
I hear you in the harmony
I hear in you the harmony

I’m writing a song
The chords have your scent on them
Your scent on them
