The piano that this song is about was actually bought for my mother's birthday by my dad. I helped him pick it out, (when I was 12). Mom got to play it that day, but I took a great interest in it and took over the bench after that. (Sorry mom). But she always would ask me to play it from that second day on. She later said that when I moved out to get married, that the house sounded like a morgue. Ha! So, for her, she was enjoying her gift all through those years of me playing it.
