This started out in my head as a more politically-charged piece… instead it turned into a gentle call-to-action with a simple but undisputable message. Pass it on!


Well, I suppose you’ll tell me
That I cannot change a thing
Well, I hear you…
Forgive me if I try to prove you wrong
Cause someone, somewhere, told me something
I don’t know who it was
Can’t remember
But it’s the thing that helps me get along

Please play fair
Tell no lies
Be good to people
Open up your eyes

Tell me that it’s complicated
Tell me I’m a child
In the real world
A nice guy’s just a sucker with a smile
And maybe there is just no room
For sentiments like these
But no matter…
At least you were distracted for a while

Please play fair
Tell no lies
Be good to people
Open up your eyes

Don’t tell me it’s impossible
I’ve walked this road before
And believe me…
I stumble far more often than I stand
But everyone believes in something
I believe in you
So come with me
And if you fall I’ll try to lend a hand

Please play fair
Tell no lies
Be good to people
Open up your eyes

In a word... multifaceted. Toronto-based songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. From a neo-classical choral opus to an unabashed rock song, I've probably written it... or at least working on it. I'm fortunate enough to make my work my play, touring across North America, Europe, and Asia. Visit me at www.dylanbell.ca ... more
