about

The Music Plays was written one evening after I attended a band rehearsal of a very good friend. I built the story line around a couple on the dance floor. I love secondary chords (4 note chords) so the song starts out with a hammering between A Major and A Major 9. I usually perform this at 105 to 110 beats per minute depending on my mood.

lyrics

Lyrics

THE MUSIC PLAYS AND LOVERS DANCE, HEARTS BEAT IN TIME.
I SING THIS SONG. I SING THIS SONG FOR YOU.
A MELODY THAT BREAKS THE HEART,
LIKE YOURS AND MINE, TWO HEARTS THAT BROKE,
TWO HEARTS THAT BROKE IN TWO.
AND STILL WE DANCE. AND STILL WE DANCE.

I MET A GIRL WITH THE SADDEST EYES, LOVELY AND KIND.
SHE MAKES ME THINK, SHE MAKES ME THINK OF YOU.
“I’M STILL AFRAID TO TAKE A CHANCE”, SAID THE GIRL IN BLUE.
I MUST GET BACK, I MUST GET BACK TO YOU.
AND STILL WE DANCE. AND STILL WE DANCE.

THE MUSIC PLAYS AND LOVERS DANCE. HEARTS BEAT IN TIME.
I SING THIS SONG, I SING THIS SONG FOR YOU.
A MELODY THAT BREAKS THE HEART
LIKE YOURS AND MINE, TWO HEARTS THAT BROKE,
TWO HEARTS THAT BROKE IN TWO.
