THE MUSIC BEGINS TO PLAY

Nobody said this would be easy
Life on the road is not a breeze
Every night I'm in a different city
Far from home.. so many to please

Sometimes I get to feeling weary
And I begin to think I can't go on
Just going through the motions
And I can't stop thinking of home

But then the instruments tune up
And all the music begins to play
The songs, like breathing new life
Somehow this becomes my best day

Tonight I won't sing for an audience
Although the crowd will be great
I'll sing for my love of sweet music
Anticipating the songs.. I can't wait

Tomorrow, the road & another town
Oh, this journey is much too long
Full of doubt and second guessing
I'll be almost sure that I can't go on

But then the instruments will tune up
And all the music will begin to play
The songs, like breathing new life
Somehow it's gonna be my best day

    To sing for the music itself,is as to write for the love of poetry,or to paint for the love of art,nature and creation itself.When you sing for the love of music and not for what is expected from the crowd,then yes even in music,one can find the purest joy.Life away from our loved ones is always extremely hard,but wait they re still so close and with us in our heart.Wherever we are,each moment,second ,is where we ought to be, that in itself is a blessing.Sing David,may your inner voice be heard

    Deep thoughts flowing like music. Well done, Lyric Man! Also thanks for your nice words on my poem, 'A Strange Dog'.

    Life on the wild side for dollars and fame, and a trip to hell if you don't know how to play the music game. Well done. Emile.

    Your lyrics are so succinct and filled with hope. Choosing the positive "somehow it's gonna be my best day" good words…john

    I am sure this is a fact of life for many musicians Dave - seems glamorous on the outside but so so lonely in reality:-) Hugs Jan xx
