Playtime

Originally recorded in May 1988, Playtime is the first of the Mysterious Fifth Member demos to be released on digital.

We've now put this track together with all the other original demos into the album Black And Blue: Demos 1987-88

lyrics

---

All we wanted was time to sing
Time to try anything
Forget the lonely yesterdays
And try to live for today
I know we tried to bend the rules
I knew we had everything to lose
Security is a job away
But who needs safety anyway

And it feels like the last time today
And who remembers playtime anyway
And it feels like the last time today
And who remembers playtime anyway
