Piano

I wouldn't have fingered you
for a piano player.

I wouldn't have touched you
for a quid.

I wouldn't have clocked you
for a minute or two.

You wouldn't have done me.
But you did.

I wouldn't have taken you
for a lover.

I wouldn't have thought you
were free.

I wouldn't have cast you
as bread on water.

You wouldn't have turned me.
But you had the key.
