Alto Saxophone

My heart is a saxophone

Full of passion

Full of love

Full of strength

Once you slide the ligature

Around the mouthpiece and reed

The tightening, so trivial

Now signifies something great for the future

Air pours out of my lungs

And fills the saxophone

My heart burns,

The flame ignites,

A fire has been lit,

An A, B, E, D

Something powerful

Has started within me

Listen to my heart sing

Hmm, hmmm, hmmmm

My heart is an alto saxophone

Alto saxophone

My heart is a saxophone

Full of passion

Full of love

Full of power

Booming, close your eyes

Listen to my heart beat!
