Please play me something that begins where it ends,
And you seem so far away by night or by day.
Even I stand alone when there's truth in my way
Unless the air is full of prayers

And you lift up your voice to sing what I say
And there's always a truth, and there's always a new way
If you lift up your voice to sing what I say
We're all travelling our way through the world

Every proud name expected to stay
forever a portrait, forever in sunset
but children take over our longest days
on a darker night when we have to leave

And you lift up your voice to sing what I say
And there's always a truth, and there's always a new way
If you lift up your voice to sing what I say
We're all travelling our way through the world

And you lift up your voice to sing what I say
And there's always a truth, and there's always a new way
If you lift up your voice to sing what I say
We're all travelling our way through the world

    General Commenti started listening to roddy's new album on myspace. the first tracks werent working so i tried the very last one which so happened to be play me something and im glad because its such a beautiful sounding song and for me at least i usually grow attached to the first song i hear. i really am having trouble figuring out what its supposed to mean. i can see that it would be that the world is constantly changing and the old die and the children grow up to replace them . there's never a constant from technology to religion. for some reason i get a hint of religion from the mention of "air full of prayers" and "truth". "Please play me something that begins where it ends" i would say means something that IS never ending. i dont know im obviously confused . ill stop rambling now. :P
