Song Description

Uptempo Rock guitar song with a Deep Purple meets Van Halen vibe. Vocals are very Blues/Rock oriented with a white soul vibe. Very Heavy Drum sound is as prominent as the guitar work. A classic little rocker.

Story Behind the Song

The story is inspired by attending Wednesday Night jams with some great local musicians, most who work at daytime jobs and are in their 30's or 40's, some older. They still hold out some hope that they will make it out of the home town, but regardless of any disappointments they live with, just the chance to play some good music with some good people at the end of the day makes everything better, like back to being kids again and playing in the local park.......

Lyrics

CHILDREN AT PLAY

IF I WAIT FOREVER
I MAY NOT FIND THE TIME
TO HOLD IT, TO GIVE IT ONE MORE TRY
SO I MAKE THE BACON
THAT HELPS ME TO GET BY
BUT IN THE EVENINGS I FALL INTO MY STRIDE

IF YOU SEE THE SMILE UPON MY FACE
FORGET THE DUES I HAD TO PAY
THERE'S NOTHING BETTER THAN TO KICK INTO A SONG TO END MY DAY
WE'RE JUST CHILDREN AT PLAY

WHEN I MEET MY MAKER
AND HE ASKS ME WHAT I KNOW
YOU CAN BETCHA
I'M GONNA GIVE A SHOW
WELL I CAN'T LIVE FOREVER
I CAN'T KEEP IT INSIDE
BECAUSE THE MUSIC IT TAKES ME FOR THE RIDE, ON A RIDE

IF YOU SEE THE SMILE UPON MY FACE
FORGET THE DUES I HAD TO PAY
THERE'S NOTHING BETTER THAN TO KICK INTO A SONG TO END MY DAY
WE'RE JUST CHILDREN AT PLAY

IF I WAIT FOREVER
I MAY NOT FIND THE TIME
TO HOLD IT, TO GIVE IT ONE MORE TRY
GOTTA GIVE IT A TRY

IF YOU SEE THE SMILE UPON MY FACE
FORGET THE DUES I HAD TO PAY
THERE'S NOTHING BETTER THAN TO KICK INTO A SONG TO END MY DAY
WE'RE JUST CHILDREN AT PLAY
