“Playing Our Song” at Durango Songwriter’s Expo Showcase

Kate Willyard joined me for the first performance of my upcoming single “Playing Our Song” at the Fall 2022 DSE Showcase.

The song itself was inspired by a love letter in which the relationship was likened to a song – sometimes quiet, sometimes loud, but always playing in our heads. I thought it was a beautiful sentiment, and finally found the right way to put it to music.

Lyrics below.

­Playing Our Song

© Andy Ard (BMI)

It’s the record you have, but the song that you want
The body you get, but the soul that you don’t
So let’s give it a spin, and play each other our parts
Til we know all by heart, and send it up the charts

Every day we’re learning another note
Of a song that’ll be the best we ever wrote
You pick it up and I’ll play along
Together we belong, the rhythm is so strong

CHORUS
Oh, sing it to me, I’ll sing it to you    
No one can hear, only we two
Every time it sounds brand new          
Playing our song, all the way through

Sometimes it’s quiet, sometimes rough
Some days it never seems long enough
But I hear the tune and my heart just wants to pop
Then we take it from the top, and I never wanna stop

We go together perfectly 
You and I make harmony
We’re a song in a million, and a million songs in one
And when each day is done, another verse is spun

Sing it to me, I’ll sing it to you 
No one can hear, only we two
Every time it sounds brand new
Playing our song, all the way through

Until our melody fades
Ooh, but what good music we made

INSTRUMENTAL

It’s the record you have, but the song that you want
The body you get, but the soul that you don’t
So let’s give it a spin, and play each other our parts
Til we know all by heart, and send it up the charts

CHORUS
Oh, sing it to me, I’ll sing it to you    
No one can hear, only we two
Every time it sounds brand new          
Playing our song, all the way through

Sing it to me, I’ll sing it to you    
No one can hear, only we two
Every time it sounds brand new          
Playing our song, all the way through
