AJR – My Play Lyrics

My Play Lyrics – AJR

I put on a play in my old house
In my cape, jumping on the old couch
Putting up lights when it’s cold out
Mom and dad, both seats sold out
Show you my play

Haven’t seen the old house lately
Wonder if they found my spaceship
I don’t want my own love wasted
Tell me this is what you’re saying:

If you both outgrew one another
I could start now, looking for a lover
But if love dies, do I fucking bother
I just really really really really really wanna
Show you my play

And I don’t wanna do it for Dad
At Dad’s new place

I worked really really really really hard
Lemme show you my play

And I don’t wanna do it twice
Cause it’s not the same

I’ve been on dates, bringing flowers
Tryna’ be great for an hour
You and me might go sour
But if we don’t hold out, then we’re cowards

I put on a play in my basement
Mom and dad smiling faces
But now I don’t know if they faked it
Guess everything is complicated

If you both outgrew one another
I could start now, looking for a lover
But if love dies, do I fucking bother
I just really really really really really wanna
Show you my play

And I don’t wanna do it for Dad
At Dad’s new place

I worked really really really really hard
Lemme show you my play

And I don’t wanna do it twice
Cause it’s not the same

You did everything everything everything that you could,
We do everything everything everything till it’s through
I’ll do everything everything everything when I’m you

But when I show you my play
Will you pretend you didn’t know
If I make a mistake
It’s gonna get really really really really bad
Before it’s okay
But maybe you’ll forget it all
While you’re watching my play
