Lyrics

PLAY - copyright 2004 by Steve Mason

(Verse 1)
More things on my mind right now, mostly old clich├ęs
It?s a learning time, something new every day
All my old friends come around, they?ve got lots to say
Talk about how time?s gone down, how we spent the days

(Chorus 1)
Please forgive me if I fade, I?m thinkin? of sunny days
I hope you won?t mind if I walk away
Go home, sit on the porch, and play

(Verse 2)
People goin? off to school, miles away
Leave their families and friends behind
I just sit here on the porch; sit and sing and play
Some folks they say Stevie?s lost his mind

(Chorus 2)
Hopin? they?ll forgive me if I fade?
But I?m thinkin? of sunny days
Hope they won?t mind if I walk away
Go home, sit on the porch, and play

(Chorus 3)
You can come with me and we?ll fade
We can enjoy sunny days
No one will mind when we walk away
Go home, sit on the porch, and play
