IL TESTO 

(Please God)
Please God, show ’em the way
Please God, on this day
Spirits all given the strength
Peace can come if you really want it

I had a fragile dream
In a grey house in the Hamptons
I’d been there before
Singing songs and doing benefits
Was in a room alone
Putting on my makeup
Like so many things that come to me
The dress came across the Persian carpet
As I fell into the dress
A thought came to me
Into my heart
I have a dream
And a door opened
I turned to face the music
I was ready for the Kennedy’s

I don’t know if it was 1960 or 1963
Everything was timeless, even me
I wasn’t old, I wasn’t young
I was just part of their dream
A shadow walked with me down the hall
It was Martin Luther King
All in shadow, all before me
Overwhelmed by destiny
Someone said, “Sing us a song
There’s a piano” and handed me a drink
The room was full of hope
A song would set them free

And I said
Please God, show ’em the way
Please God, on this day
Spirits all given the strength
Peace can come if you really want it

I sat at the piano
Stared out of the shadows
I sang the words, “I have a dream”
He wasn’t my old friend John
I didn’t know him then
But he smiled at me
And I sang these words
“Whatever it takes
Whatever it takes to be free”
No, I didn’t know these men
But they knew me
It was all symbolic
Nothing was as it seemed
They all left us in a single shot
But they didn’t take the dream
They were there in that house
Discussing the future
And drinking champagne
I was just a piano player
The voice, part of their dream
I was thirty-five and maybe I was fifteen
It was just another night in the presence of Martin Luther King
I was just a dreamer
I was ready for the Kennedy’s
