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

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

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 drop-topped 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 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)

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.
