When the Music Starts to Play
by The Incredible String Band



All my life and it's been a short one;
I've met the happy and the sad together.
I chased the soft warm air that flew before me,
And through the storm on wings of love,
the song of life bore me.

And when the music starts to play let me be around, (I said)
When the music starts to play let me be around.

Oh, can't you see how my heart soars high,
When I hear that music.
When the music starts to play let me be around.

When sadness lays his cold fist on my shoulder,
And pushes me in icy waters drowning,
The gentle hand of music lifts me smiling,
And through these sounds my heart takes bounds,
I happy am.

And when the music starts to play let me be around, (I said)
When the music starts to play let me be around.

Oh, can't you see how my heart soars high,
When I hear that music.
When the music starts to play let me be around.
