hernameisbanks / I just found my toy keyboard. The one I taught myself to play on. It's cheap and has a million broken notes. U can hear it in this one line from one of my first songs. It used to annoy me. When that one stupid note would all the sudden get so loud. But today it just sounds sweet and I missed its broken keys. It's like my home :)
