The drum line is the beat of my heart
So can I play with sadness?
The beat slows,
Then I die?
Can I play with sadness?

You walk by and the beat’s fast,
Lively like before.
I see you and instantly need you,
Can I Play Without You?

You’re the beat in my heart,
The beat to my soul.
Without you,
The drums don’t flow.

Can I Play Without You?

You bring me joy,
You bring me life.
Can I Play Without You?
Can I play with sadness?

Maybe I have fallen,
Maybe I was pushed,
Either way,
Your love is my hook.

You bring me joy,
You bring me life.
Can I Play Without You?
Can I play with sadness?

Don’t leave me,
Don’t kill me.
Leaving me only kills me
So don’t go.

The drum line is slowly ending
We’re exactly in the right beat now
I love you.
Where were you all my life?



You bring me joy,
You bring me life.
Can I Play Without You?
Can I play with sadness?

The end has almost come,
Not just for the drum.
There use to be a spark
But now I’ve learn.

I imagined the joy,
Imagined the life
I can play without you
But I still want you in my life

Not the perfect ending,
But it’s good enough for me.
We were here,
But now we are a use to be.

But I still can’t help but wonder…

You bring me joy,
You bring me life.
Can I Play Without You?
Can I play with sadness?
