Lyrics to Play It As It Lays
Play It As It Lays Video:
Sad song on the radio
Echoes down this empty road here tonight
With a lost melody and a lonely rhyme
Of windshield wipers slapping time---you know the one
Well it woke up something that was sleeping below my skin
I wanted to tell you so much, but where do I start? Where do I begin?
Do I start with how I lost my kindness and how I found it once again
And I'm gonna play it as it lays
Play it as it lays
Ooh, ooh

Every perfect picture has a mess or two
Sometimes it's me, sometimes it's you, but that's all right
You surrender, you confess, you make a mess, you get undressed and call it a night
But I remember the first time that I lay down inside your arms
How I kissed your tired mouth, so full of grace, so empty of harm
How I knew the road ahead would ravel itself, cursed and charmed
And I would just play it as it lays
Play it as it lays
Play it as it lays
Play it as it lays

Say a prayer for the brokenhearted
Get back up and get it started again
Say a prayer for the brokenhearted
Say a prayer for love

Years go by, you add them up
Some days are holy, some days are rough, but that's all right
It's a used up line, you know it's true
I never loved anyone the way that I love you
Yesterday I walked down the streets we walked when were young
Tried to pull a thread between who we once were and who we've become
And if we lost a little along the way, that's all right, what's done is done
And I'm just gonna play it as it lays
Oh, play it as it lays
I'm just gonna play it as it lays
Oh, play it as it lays
All right
Play it as it lays
I'm gonna
Play it as it lays
All right
(Ooh)
(Ooh)
(Ooh)
