Lyrics:
Soul Tag by R&F Newman

I've been spending so many years
Trying to figure out wha-wha wha why.
Wake one day and life blows through us.
Eat, work, sleep - And then it seems its time to die.

Now I just gotta laugh - This game's so utterly vast
You say we're s'posed to play soul tag. (2x)
... You say we gotta play soul tag.

Katie said she felt our minds touch
And I do believe that what she said is true.
Brightens up a room so much
Twirling and wild dancing away - everyone's blues.

Thinking back to my old math class
Now I understand Venn diagrams
Visualize how our paths overlap
Drift apart and then we may converge again.

Okay, I'm in - I promise I'll play every day
You say we're s'posed to play soul tag. (2x)
... You say we gotta play soul tag.

Is this one long recess on the Big Playground
Am I s'posed to keep my eyes shut
Cause I think that I am "it" this round
Touch as many as I can before this turn is up.

Okay, I'm in - I promise I'll play every day
You say we're s'posed to play soul tag. (2x)
... You say we gotta play soul tag.

In the woods a chipmunk checks me out
I stop a while to stare & give some chattering back
For that tiny moment our paths intersect
I true-believe we did connect & (somehow) interact.

Now I just gotta laugh - This game's so utterly vast
You say we're s'posed to play soul tag. (2x)
... You say we gotta play soul tag.

About the Song
description: Holden Caulfield (in J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye) worried that life was a game were he had to catch kids falling through the rye.. From a spiritual perspective we might say that life's actually an elaborate game of "Soul Tag". "Katie" is a real person who inspired the song when she was describing a specific chance encounter she had. It was a while ago, so we're not sure she might have actually said, "Our psyche's touched".
