Whatcha gonna do when the show is over
Whatcha gonna sing when the song ends
How you gonna cope when there is no closure
Where you gonna reach when the goal gets higher
How you gonna make it through
When you think you lost your chance

Play on
When you're losing the game
Play on
'Cause you're gonna make mistakes
It's always worth the sacrifice
Even when you think you're wrong
So play on
Play on

Even when the flood gates swing wide open
Never let the currents sink you down, no
Even when you're not sure where you're going
Swimming through a mess and you can't get out
Just going through the motions, and trying not to drown

Play on
When you're losing the game
Play on
'Cause you're gonna make mistakes
It's always worth the sacrifice
Even when you think you're wrong
So play on
Play on

Even through a storm on the darkest night
Don't you ever give up the fight
Even when you feel you're all alone
Play on
Play on

Play on
When you're losing the game
Play on
'Cause you're gonna make mistakes
It's always worth the sacrifice
Even when you think you're wrong
So play on
Play on (play on)
Play on (play on)
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na

    This song is all about keep on trying no matter what kind of a mess you're in. When I get stuck on something, I always think of this song and then I would keep going until I solve the problem.
