Lance's Song

  • Doing what you love has a high price to pay
    Some put on a suit, but he ran the other way
    Drums drown out the yuppies
    And the ones who couldn't dream
    'Cause the freedom music gave him was worth more than anything

    They don't know
    What they got
    Until it's gone
    Like it or not
    You live on love
    You try to do what's right
    We're all here waiting for our silver invitation
    To the big band in the sky

    Rollin' down the windows
    Trying hard to fight the sleep
    Money's never much for a band in Tennessee
    Another night of playin'
    To a crowd with no ears
    Wanna hear the songs they know
    And fill their bellies full of beer

    But they don't know
    What they got
    Until it's gone
    Like it or not
    You live on love
    You try to do what's right
    We're all here waiting for our silver invitation
    To the big band in the sky

    And when he closed his eyes
    Fell into a dream that never dies
    And when the thunder comes
    You can hear his kick drum in the sky
    Feel the rain
    Fall from our eyes

    'Cause we don't know
    What we got
    Until it's gone
    Like it or not
    You live on love
    You try to do what's right
    For him there's no more waiting
    Got his silver invitation
    To do a little playing
    For the big band in the sky Writer/s: NIC COWAN, ZACHRY ALEXANDER BROWN
