Singalong

You say good morning, I say good night-
the setting sun is a beautiful sight
play me some music all shiny and bright

While the shadows grow, there’s still more I want to know-
will you share your song

Creaky bones, aches and pains-
this getting old is such a shame
play me something that you composed

It don’t matter if the tune sounds strange-
’cause if you care to share your song, I’ll try to sing along

Singalong

From Lego trains to video games-
some Facebook photos are all that remain
Like a minor chord in a major key

You know the feeling’s strong-
although the child is grown and gone, I still sing along

Singalong

The hit parade it don’t mean a thing-
It’s your song that I want to sing

Synthesizers, drum machines-
the latest loop, fresh beats on the scene
play me something that will make us dance

It don’t matter that the tune sounds strange-
if you care to share your song, I’ll try to sing along

Singalong
