The music play
Wake up and hear the music
Wake up and hear what the people say

I heard the heavens sing
Predicting Marty Robbins
I knew I'd find music and time
Were the perfect plan

I watched my son sail on
A little ship a-bobbin'
I had to grow
I needed to know exactly who I am

And as the ocean warmed
And from this dream we woke
One sang to greet the dawn
One pursed his lips and spoke

Wake up and hear the music ...
