Tripod – I Will Still Play lyrics

If all you leave me is bones
I will sing bones
If all you leave me is dust
I will sing dust
If everything I have loved is taken away
I will still play
I will still play

I won't change the course of the rivers
Or sing up the stones
You won't still be humming my tune
By the time you get home
I know we all go back to dirt
At the end of the day
But I will still play
I will still play
You can do what you want anyway

It's cold in the land of the dead
The rivers are slow
They're shuffling off to their end
And they don't even know
Up there they've also forgotten
It's all going grey
But I will still play
I will still play

Laugh at me, that's nothing new
It was always that way
Change all the rules to the game
From what they were in my day
But I will still play
I will still play
I will still play
