Like The Piano
Sampha Lyrics


No one knows me like the piano in my mother's home
You would show me I have something, some people call a soul
And you dropped out the sky, oh, you arrived when I was three years old
No one knows me like the piano in my mother's home

You know I left, I flew the nest
And you know I won't be long
And in my chest you know me best
And you know I'll be back home

An angel by her side, oh, all the times I knew we couldn't cope
They said that it's her time, no tears in sight, I kept the feelings close
And you took hold of me and never, never, never let me go
'Cause no one knows me like the piano in my mother's home
In my mother's home

Lyrics. ✌🏼


No one knows me like the piano in my mother's home
You would show me I had something some people call a soul
And you dropped out the sky, oh you arrived when I was three years old
No one knows me like the piano in my mother's home
You know I left, I flew the nest
And you know I won't be long
And in my chest you know me best
And you know I'll be back home
An angel by her side, all of the times I knew we couldn't cope
They said that it's her time, no tears in sight, I kept the feelings close
And you took hold of me and never, never, never let me go
'Cause no one knows me like the piano in my mother's home
In my mother's home



Parisa M.

Verse 1]
No one knows me like the piano in my mother's home
You would show me I had something some people call a soul
And you dropped out the sky, oh you arrived when I was three years old
No one knows me like the piano in my mother's home

[Chorus]
You know I left, I flew the nest
And you know I won't be long
And in my chest you know me best
And you know I'll be back home

[Verse 2]
An angel by her side, all of the times I knew we couldn't cope
They said that it's her time, no tears in sight, I kept the feelings close
And you took hold of me and never, never, never let me go
'Cause no one knows me like the piano in my mother's home
In my mother's home

No one knows me like the piano in my mother's home
You would show me I had something some people call a soul
And you dropped out the sky, oh you arrived when I was three years old
No one knows me like the piano in my mother's home

[Chorus]
You know I left, I flew the nest
And you know I won't be long
And in my chest you know me best
And you know I'll be back home

[Verse 2]
An angel by her side, all of the times I knew we couldn't cope
They said that it's her time, no tears in sight, I kept the feelings close
And you took hold of me and never, never, never let me go
'Cause no one knows me like the piano in my mother's home

Sampha moved back into his childhood home to look after his mother following her cancer diagnosis. The piano became a form of escapism from the difficult circumstances. The singing of songs was a form of catharsis and the result is this song, a tribute to his mother.

EDIT: WOW. I posted this comment well over two years ago at a point where I was feeling low. By no means did I ever expect to get this sort of reach or support. I cannot thank those that reached out with loving and thoughtful comments enough. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read about my story, and with all that is going on in the world, I genuinely hope you are all staying safe and are surrounded by those you love and cherish. From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU 💙

Original Comment:
I doubt anyone will read this or care about it. But this is one of the most meaningful songs in the world to me. Not only did "Process" as a whole get me through the many months that my mother spent in the hospital, but when she finally got out, I was able to share this with her and we cried together. She told me that she was afraid she was going to pass away, as he had been very sick for many months. I told her, while holding her as we cried, that she would be okay. Fast forward a little over a month later, and out of nowhere she passed away. March 25th, 2017. She was 37 years old. This was the song that I played before I spoke at her funeral. I knew that, playing this and listening to it while I stood in front of all of her friends and family, that she was still there with me. With all of us. I flashed back to the night we spent crying in her car, the same as I am now, crying here writing this. And I just wanted to say, that you never know when your last goodbye will be. Cherish every damn moment that you have with your loved ones, because you never know when they will be gone. Thank you, Sampha, for sharing not only this song with the world, but an entire album that has gotten me through the toughest year of my life.
