Lyrics
A messenger arrived through
a sunlit' open door
Passed the dangers of the world
to his troubled queen so bored
With a voice full of worry and
a frightened fighter's face
Another day's morning in life's busy race
He looked into her eyes before he spoke
(He said)

Play my darling, play
Don't you put yourself on the throne no more
Play my darling, play
There's a world outside our broken borders
Play my darling, play
Don't you put your key in another door
Play my darling, play
With a world outside your broken borders

She's a lonely young girl
she's the sister of the moon
Her heart is like November
though she wants it to be June
Larger than life she's standing there so tall
There's a note with her name and
it's hanging on the wall
Her eyes they opened wide when she read
(He said)

Play my darling, play
Don't you put yourself on the throne no more
Play my darling, play
There's a world outside our broken borders
Play my darling, play
Don't you put your key in another door
Play my darling, play
With a world outside your broken borders

Play my darling, play

She's stuck there on her
island so marooned
The limelights got
her blinded and harpooned
(She said)

Play my darling, play
Don't you put yourself on the throne no more
Play my darling, play
There's a world outside our broken borders
Play my darling, play
Don't you put your key in another door
Play my darling, play
With a world outside your broken borders
