Lyrics

Play Along

Written By: Chris Bard

i got you inside my head and their's nothing i can do
for now i keep my distance like and animal in the zoo

i play along, i need somebody
play along don't you want too

you can laugh at me if you want to i don't really mind
your cruelty you kindness it's all the same and i want it to be mine

i play along, i want your body
play along i'm in love with you

i wrote a love letter i did my best to keep it nice and neat but
i had know paper it's written on my sheets

play along i need somebody
play along just for a few
play along it won't kill you to
play along i'm in love with you

Don't let me down

Written By: Chris Bard

while you were sleeping i sat up alone
on top of a hill wondering about the unknown
don’t ask me why my confusion persists
it’s just a habit i live with

don’t let me down ah ah huh i feel it coming
i won’t let you down i won’t stop running

cause i know your restless and you gotta rome
i won’t tie you down i don’t want to own you
i’ll take the time to feed your crazy cat
i’ll even get rid of my dirty old hat

don’t let me down ah ah huh i feel it coming
i won’t let you down i won’t stop running

what ‘s on your mind
is it sometimes you feel unfulfilled inside
when you say good night to yourself at night
are you a little lonely too there’s something you can do

while you were sleeping i got in my car
i drove up to the bridge and took a walk for a while
i’m not alone there’s others here like me
wandering around a little nervously

don’t let me down ah ah huh i feel it coming
i won’t let you down i won’t stop running

i’ll help you down when your hung on a wire
i’ll keep you warm i won’t dampen the fire
right now your mine but i’m a little uneasy
i can’t deny it i really need you

don’t let me down ah ah huh i feel it coming
i won’t let you down i won’t stop running

So Long

Written By: Chris Bard

reaching out reaching in to where it ends and where it begins
have you ever been i’m lost again but i can’t remember when
days and nights in neon land tell which one who can’t you stand

i never knew you well but i won’t forget you
sometimes things are better left unsaid and i’ll probably regret you
i gotta go i can’t bide my time or something along those lines

so long
so long

if you find the answer right away call me up please don’t delay
i;ll tell you the piper must be paid.

hey hey i can play for you it’s easy for me to do beyond living life
without a clue there must be some good i can do
but sometimes even the best laid plans...
i guess i’ll find out when i’m an old man so long

so long
so long
