Arthur Ashe LYRICS

August 31, 2009

Arthur and me, we’re out playing class 3

And we’re losing all the weight that

The world bequeaths

Keeping you unbelievers

On the edge of your seats

Because love means nothing

Until you’ve held control

Then thrown it away

And then something magical

Reveals itself in recklessness

I work for the state, I commute, I eat late

And there’s so much life

I’ve chosen not to investigate

But here on court with Arthur

Is where I’ve tasted greatness

And love, which means nothing

Until you’ve held control

Then thrown it away

And then something magical

Reveals itself to be love

To mean something

It means something

To Arthur Ashe and me

Let those inches decide

If the ball’s in or wide

It’s nothing to Arthur and me

We elect to be free

Of the flail and the strain

We just play every game

And each point and each shot

Like it’s all that we’ve got

To enjoy and to prove

That we live and we move

Hit a true and free ball

Let it fall where it falls

And we’ll never play easy

No, never play easy

Easy’s the enemy

Of Arthur’s beauty

In dark I drive home

I don’t switch on my phone

I just sit there aching

On my couch alone

Then Arthur sits down beside me

And we talk about love
