lyrics

Years ago
When I was young you sat me down
Looked me in the eye
You said "Son.....whatcha gonna do with your life? Where you goin?"

Seasons changed
Eventually I found the courage
Built the strength to say
"Dad, I haven't got a clue
Don't know what to do
To satisfy this heart"
"Well, take your time
Stop to wonder, stop to listen, stop and feel peace of mind
Don't care what you do
Just see it through
Give it all your heart
Play your heart out"

Ohhhh
Play your heart out
Ohhhh

Then came the day
Deep inside I realized
All I wanted to do
Was play on stage
Sing my songs, share my stories
See the world, touch other people's hearts

You sat me down
Looked me in the eye and you said "Son...
You turned out alright
Sure I'll buy you that guitar
On one condition
Gotta play it with your heart
Play your heart out"

Ohhhh
Play your heart out
Ohhhh

You know every time I look at your picture
You were 17 and livin' dreams
I hear your words like clockwork
Every morning, every night
I can hear you say
"Don't ever let yourself
Get caught up in that game
Don't let them drag you through the mud
It's in your blood
To play your heart out"

Ohhhh
Play your heart out
Ohhhh
