You Are Here Alan Gillies' House of Music
SING
words & music by Alan Gillies
I spent last night, just watchin' the sun go down,
Staring south as the streetlights lit up this "one-horse town",
And I thought of all the things that had gone on in my life,
and those that're going on now,
How love sometimes stings, why I've never had a wife,
but I still make it through somehow;

I thought about the guys in the band, how they're always waitin' for me,
And the sound of clapping hands, and 3-part harmony,
All the sweat & blood & tears, and hotel souvenirs,
and every broken guitar string,
Friends and lovers lost, and all this life has cost,
and all I could do was sing;

Sing about the good times that we've had, even when the good times turned out bad,
Sing about the one's who've gone away, sing all night & sing all day,
Sing about the hardships that you face, always comin' in second place,
Sing about happiness & pain, sing for the sun and for the rain,
Sing for your friends & family, sing for everyone you see,
Sing for the young & for the old, sing no matter what you're told,
Sing about everything... just sing.

Took a loan out on my car, just to buy a new guitar,
Seems no matter which I choose, neither one gets me very far.
Seems there's always one more thing, to keep my dreams from happening,
But I don't care just as long as I can sing.

Sing about the good times that we've had, even when the good times turned out bad,
Sing about the one's who've gone away, sing all night & sing all day,
Sing about the hardships that you face, always comin' in second place,
Sing about happiness & pain, sing for the sun and for the rain,
Sing for your friends & family, sing for everyone you see,
Sing for the young & for the old, sing no matter what you're told,
Sing about everything... just sing.
