David Simmons - That's why I Play Lyrics


I sat and watched the waves crashing in
On that white sandy beach
As the sun went down
Over this little town
Um what a beautiful view
And I see lovers young and old
Walking hand and hand in that cool breeze
Puts a big smile on my face
One I can’t replace there’s just no way

So I got up and made my way back to the bar
Pulled up my stool
And picked up my old guitar
And I played this tune so soft and sweet.
But in my mind I go back in time
Oh these memories as a child
Free just to be me
That’s why I play
It takes me away
That’s why I play

Every time I pick up my guitar
It clears my mind
I’m another person lost in another time
All I do is close my eyes and play a tune
I find a song running through my strings
So you can all sing right along with me
If you could see what I see in your eyes
The laughter the smiles when I play
Sometimes I take your mind away
To another place
Takes me back to when I was a child
With that same smile
Free just to be me
Yeah that’s why I play
It takes me away
That’s why I play

When life pushes at me hard
I find a chair and my guitar
Maybe sometimes a little goose to get me loose
It helps me smile
And I just play
Block out all my troubles of the day
Forget about it all ...my mind just runs away
And I just play
I just play
Right on through the day into the night
As long as it feels right
I’m gonna play

Its puts a big smile on my face
Hell one I can’t replace
It’s just me right where I wanna be all alone
You don’t have to come along
Because I’m gonna play all night right into the day
All I do is close my eyes and play a tune
I find a song running through my strings
So you can all sing right along with me
You should see what I see in your eyes
The laughter the smiles when I play
Sometimes I take your mind away
To another place
Takes me back to when I was a child
With that same smile
Free just to be me
Yeah that’s why I play
It takes me away
That’s why I play

Every time I pick up this guitar
It clears my mind
I’m just another person lost in another time
All I do is close my eyes and
Play a tune
I find a song running through my strings
So you can all sing right along with me
If you could see what I see in your eyes
The laughter the smiles when I play
Sometimes I take your mind away
To another place
Takes me back to when I was a child
With that same smile
Free just to be me
Yeah that’s why I play
It takes me away
That’s why I play
