Typewriter has been a part of people’s lives over many years from letters of a soldier to his family to a letter to the the next door girl . All the words went through the typewriter with each clicking noise. Yes, the noise…a sound so distinct that no modern keyboard can replicate. Even if it does in some corner of this technologically advanced digital world, there is no way to bring the elegance and the feel of the touch of the keys of the typewriter.

Alicia Keys gave her beautiful voice to a beautiful song depicting the Typewriter…

Here we go, ladies and gentlemen
Past all of the technical difficulties
That we have lots for experience
I will let you into my laboratory, filled with many things

Writing intentions, you see
Such as my typewriter in the corner
Let me show you to the window
So you can see what I see, you know

Desperate am I to
Tell you how I feel for you
No sunshine when you are gone
Peaceful sleep I have none

How can I make it better
I’m under so much pressure
Well, I know it won’t last
I know that this will pass

You’re my typewriter
I write to you what I am thinking
Thinking in my head

You’re my typewriter
I write to you what I am thinking
Can’t you understand?

I don’t want to falsify
I want to make it right
Can’t you see there’s work to do?
I’m trying to write to you

How can I make it better
I’m under so much pressure
Problem is, problem is
I’ll give you space till you get over this

You’re my typewriter
I write to you what I am thinking
Thinking in my head

You’re my typewriter
I write to you what I am thinking
Can’t you understand?

To torture a woman
Is to feed her loneliness
So please don’t leave me lonely
‘Cause it’s your mind that I miss

You’re my typewriter
I write to you what I am thinking
Thinking in my head

You’re my typewriter
I write to you what I am thinking
Can’t you understand?

Words cannot come to an end nor the legacy of a typewriter. Times change and old gets replaced by the new. Keep typing…
