I used to play catch every chance that I could
I'd find Craig Casteel every day after school
He'd stand on his front lawn and I'd stand on mine
Flinging clotheslines and rainbows and grounders

I'd toss my knuckler and he threw it hard
We spent half our time searching other folks yards
But the feeling of hearing that pop in my glove
Was my introduction to love

I love to play catch, throw a ball, see what happens
The curves and rotations, the caroms and rolls
The whole thing depends on the way that you hold it
And the way that you let it go

Then I played catch where the stakes were much higher
On top of my game, in my prime, at my peak
When she held her hand out and gave me that target
I laid it all down at her feet

But this was when I became prone to more blunders
In judging the distance and getting the calls
The harder I tried to eliminate errors
The more that I bobbled the balls

I love to play catch, throw a ball, see what happens
The curves and rotations, the caroms and rolls
The whole thing depends on the way that you hold it
And the way that you let it go

SO put a big "E" on the scoreboard for Davie
The once curly hair that was dark is now graying
Did I stop playing because I grew older
Or have I grown older because I stopped playing

So here we are, you and me, deep in the season
You know that I love you the best that I can
Somedays you make it so easy it's crazy
Other days I make it hard, please forgive me

A man who loves catch, throw a ball, see what happens
The curves and rotations, the caroms and rolls
The whole thing depends on the way that you hold it
And the way

That you let it go
