[Verse 1 - Illy:]
Yeah, life's a song that plays once through, true
So I keep my best days in my front view
Cause sure thing, one day I'll be gone
But I don't want forever, nah, I don't need that long
Look, I just need, like, 15 minutes and a chance
Cause I don't wanna think man, I just wanna dance
With my friends, with my love with a drink in my hand
With a full house rocking out, singing our jams while the beat goes

[Hook - Illy:]
On and on (Hey!)
And it plays and it plays and it's gone
And it goes around, comes back around
And it's been around but it goes
On and on (Hey!)
So it plays and it plays and it's gone
And it's all good but 'till that comes
The beat goes on and on

[Verse 2 - Illy:]
Yeah, life's a song so I write mine with love
And I write mine with truth 'till the life out my lungs
How they say "Youth's wasted on the young"
When our minds like bullets rounds rolling off the tounge
Hearts beating like..
You'd think it was the drums
So full of sweet melodies, we'll sleep when we're done
Take in each ray of sunshine, save it for when rainy days come
Cause them rainy days will come for each one the beat goes


(Goes on and on, woah-oh-oh-oh)
(Beat goes on and on, woah-oh-oh-oh)

[Verse 3 - Illy:]
Yeah, life's a song it ain't one run forever
And the best parts in are the ones sung together
So look, I don't wanna be alone
So play it through the speakers, you can keep the headphones
Shit, I just wanna go but you can come too
You could share my view, we can sing the same tune
All roads lead to somewhere, life's like music
For each new direction you move in, never lose your roots
Cause it's not what's now it's what lasts
It's less about the outcome, more about the path
Cause life passes, blink hard you miss parts
So look 'em in the eye and you speak from the heart
You're never what you aren't
No point trying to swap your voice for another's
Laugh loud, love lots and dance like nobody's there to watch
Cause one day the song will stop like..
But 'till then the beat goes
