Lyrics

Play Me A Love Song
(Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer)

The bar almost empty, the night nearly done
Just two songs to sing & away we can run
A man on a bar stool in love with his glass
One more at the table whose best days are past
A couple are fighting over old love affairs
And the barman is dreaming of millionaires

Chorus:
Then play me a love song, comes a call from the floor
I need something to sing as I walk out the door
The streets will be lonely, the streets will be cold
There’s nobody waiting, there’s no-one to hold
So play me a love song, then I can go home

Just a voice in the darkness but no-one in view
Then out of the shadows, a face that I knew
I remembered a summer somewhere in my past
And a young man who promised a love that would last
The face had grown older, the body more thin
But I still hear the music come deep from within

Chorus:
Play me a love song, was the call from the floor
I need something to sing as I walk out the door
The streets will be lonely, the sheets will be cold
There’s nobody waiting, there’ll be no-one to hold
So play me a love song, then I can go home

Bridge:
The heart that was broken, the words still unsaid
They’re boxed with the memories under the bed

Chorus:
Play me a love song, was the call from the floor
I need something to sing as I walk out the door
The streets will be lonely, the sheets will be cold
There’s nobody waiting, no-one to hold
So play me a love song, then I can go home
