lyrics

PLAY ME A SONG

play me a song
that’s was never wrote down
It’s only been sung
and passed all around
solid and strong
it holds up the past
a single lone highway
in a land old and vast

tell me a story
nobody knows
the names may be arcane
and the places remote
and the words fall around
like a tumble in bed
can’t tell your own thoughts
from the tune in your head

gather the empties
secure the door’s latch
refresh all our glasses
let’s sing of the past
when the morning sun comes
and burns out the stars
we’ll still be singing songs
of our mothers and fathers

sing me a song
you’ll never write down
sing it just once
in the lights to the crowd
a song about something
especially dear
then give it away
to be forgotten or cheered

The water’s too deep I am drowning
Lost in the warm neath the waves
No one around to save me
Let everything all wash away
