Lyrics

The Sound

Verse
So you had a hard day, looking forward to getting home
Worry about it some other time, ‘cause you know it’ll be there in the morning
You get into your car, turn up the sound on the radio
The radio’s playin’ a song that you love, so you start to sing along
And when you start to sing along, well before you know it

Chorus
Nothing like the sound of music to set your soul free
From the troubles of the day
Nothing like the sound of music, to make you tap your feet
Or dance your blues away (blues away)

Verse
It’s a beautiful summer day and hot so you turn the sprinkler on
Watching the kids just screaming and laughing as they run across the lawn
You remember back to those times, things seemed so much simpler then
All you needed was your best friend and the ice cream truck comin’ round the bend
Here it comes around the bend and before you know it

Chorus
Nothing like the sound of children, laughing out loud to give your soul a lift
Nothing like the sound of children speakin their minds and we should all get back to this

Bridge
So hold on tight, though you might
Think the flight is at night
Flying right out of sight
You will find peace of mind
In the kind twists of time
Lemon lime grand design
Draws a line this is mine
I’m alright just for spite
I’ll stay out late at the bar, once in a while

Verse
The long weekend’s here and all you want is to get away
Get up off of the paper trail, and go look for the milky way
Just takin’ some time to soak it in as you look out across the lake
Morning comes with a hot cup of Joe and all the sounds that nature makes
And then you know it’s no mistake cause before you know it

Chorus
Nothing like the sound of crickets singing in the grass
Under cover of the night
Nothing like the sound of crickets, they go quite as you pass
Now isn’t that polite

Bridge
So hold on tight, though you might
Think the flight is at night
Flying right out of sight
You will find peace of mind
In the kind twists of time
Lemon lime grand design
Draws a line this is mine
I’m alright just for spite
I’ll stay out late at the bar, once in a while
