lyrics

I went to a party
To see what might start me
I left all alone, but they told me play on, play on

Enlisted at bucknell
To learn how to fuck well
I studied for days, hoping I could play on, play on

Play on, I wanted to
Play on, even if your heart don't want to
We wait for the moment when the stars align
To spill all our secrets over bottles of wine
Don't be afraid of disappointment
It's the rule of the road when your love is by appointment

We pray to the heavens that our hearts won't break
And praise our physicians for the drugs we take
Don't throw the fly out with the ointment
You've gotta keep it strong
So baby play on

I french kissed a demon
Her lips started steamin'
I ran for the hills but she made me play on, play on

I hitched to Tacoma
With eight bucks and six lipomas
And took on the world with a cry of play on, play on

Play on, I wanted you
Play on, even when my heart said not to
We pour all our hopes into a room that's dark
Where cakes tend to melt like it's MacArthur Park
This is your chance for retribution
You can keep it alive with a stay of execution

I promised your dad I'd have you home by nine
So warm up the kitten with a ball of twine
You got some problems, here's solutions
You've gotta keep love strong so baby play on

There's no easy way in
There's no easy way in
There's no easy way
