"Play Me" as written by and Neil Diamond....
She was moring
And I was night time
I one day woke up
To find her lying
Beside my bed
I softly said
"Come take me"
For I've been lonely
In need of someone
As though I'd done
Someone wrong somewhere
I don't know where
Come lately

You are the sun
I am the moon
You are the words
I am the tune
Play me

Song she sang to me
Song she brang to me
Words that rang in me
Rhyme that sprang from me
Warmed the night
And what was right
Became me

You are the sun
I am the moon
You are the words
I am the tune
Play me

And so it was
That I came to travel
Upon a road
That was thorned and narrow
Another place
Another grace
Would save me

You are the sun
I am the moon
You are the word
I am the tune
Play me

    My InterpretationJust a few random thoughts of this song (as the story I see in it)...

    She was morning
    And I was night time
    I one day woke up
    To find her lying
    Beside my bed
    I softly said
    "Come take me"

    Interesting. Why was she lying beside his bed? Kind of gives the impression she was waiting for him to become aware of her presence. Like she'd been waiting for him for awhile.


    Rhyme that sprang from me
    Warmed the night
    And what was right
    Became me

    And what was right, became me....He became what was "right", the better man? Or he felt that through her eyes he could do no wrong? Or even that what was right looked more becoming, more attractive, to him because of her presence.

    And so it was
    That I came to travel
    Upon a road
    That was thorned and narrow
    Another place
    Another grace
    Would save me

    So at some point he decides to leave her, I think. A thorned and narrow road, too narrow, I'm guessing, for more than one to travel. Another place, another grace... Something else destined to save him. Fame? Fortune? Almost a religious connotation to those words.

    You are the sun
    I am the moon
    You are the words
    I am the tune
    Play me

    Echoed three times. The third time, is it a looking back to the earlier memories of her? Or is he speaking to the new entity that he has chosen to follow instead...

    Song MeaningI still think Diamond is talking about his guitar. Think about it, lying beside my bed (not on it) come take me ,You are the words
    I am the tune play me. The guitar is his companion and source of the tune, Diamond is the source of the words. I could be wrong here but makes sense the way he wrote the lyrics.
