about

Our collaboration on 50/90. Arthur wrote this fantastic lyric and I absolutely loved it so I've asked Arthur whether I could compose music to it. I couldn't wait for Arthur's reply and already started working on my music before hearing from Arthur. I thought, if someone already wrote music to his lyric I'll just have my instrumental piece then but luckily Arthur was happy to collaborate with me :) We both were hoping to hear Dawn's vocals and now we have Dawn's beautiful singing. Hope you enjoy listening to our song.

Johnny, play whatever you like,
something serene, something fast, here’s the mike!
…anything and it won’t be wrong,
but, please, just stop playing that old song!

Johnny, you know what the hearts need,
a bit love and a bit pain to make them bleed,
some joy and hope to keep them strong,
but please, just stop playing that old song!

(Chorus)
Not that song again!
Not that song again!
Please, Johnny,
not that song again!
Not that song again!

Johnny, you know as many notes
as I know dark highways and empty roads,
play your music, just come! Go on!
but please, just stop playing that old song!

(Chorus)
Not that song again!
Not that song again!
Please, Johnny,
not that song again!
Not that song again!
