I am thin and hollow,
I look like a tube,
But all over me there are holes.
Without these holes I could not sing,
Which is one of my few roles.
I have a head, a body, and tail,
Yet I can easily be twisted apart.
I can't lose my keys,
They're attached to me,
And I need them more than a heart.
I do not live and I can not die,
...Now can you guess: What am I?


A flute.
Flutes need keys and holes to make music. Their three parts are called a head, body, and tail, and these can be put together and pulled apart easily.
