On the clearest night
When the wind takes flight
Like a lullaby, like a lullaby
On a moonlit lake
What a great escape
Like a butterfly, like a butterfly

Hands over my eyes
I'm not gonna cry
Try to break me down
Shut me in
So-called love is wearing thin
And I won't back down

I won't fade away
I'll make it through as long
As the music plays
On the wire
While your batting high
I am not a game, this is not a game

Try to break me down
Shut me in
So-called love is wearing thin
And I won't back down
I won't fade away
I'll make it through as long
As the music plays

Try to break me down
Shut me in
So-called love is wearing thin
And I won't back down
I won't fade away
I'll make it through as long
As the music plays
Let the music play

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a girl who's breaking free and moving on in her life. The song was played on the series finale of Instant Star where Jude is moving to London to pursue her music career. She's leaving behind everything, including her family, friends, and fiancee. She knows that as much as she loves them, she is ultimately all about her music and she will be okay 'as long as the music plays.'

    This song is called "The Music" btw. :)
