Play To The World - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

You can make the day seem right
And make the darkness bright
That's what you do
Girl, don't hide your love away
You'll want it back some day
That's what they say

And, my friend
We're gonna make it right
And play to the world tonight
We'll play to the world

Time, what's to become of me?
What will the future see?
What will they say?

Life is like a passing dream
It's never what it seems to be
From day to day

And, my friend
We're gonna make it right
And play to the world tonight
We'll play to the world
