Lyrics:

Music Makers ©1998 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

In secret spaces - the music makers are laying down their lines
Daring explorers - experiments in rhythm, harmony and time

Belting out blues on the beltway when they're workday traffic jammin'
Carnegie car resounds as the imagined fans are standing
The neighbor's kids in the barn - that's a fine groove he's got going
The reference librarian's got a hot harp solo blowing

And the gods of the playlist never even had an inkling
And the rec-execs and A&R never even had a clue

You never hear them in record stores or on the radio
Suspect, be suspicious - the music makers are everyone you know.

The industrial engineer's got a studio down his cellar
After work, he plays and the songs keep getting better
Cyber graphic guy's been sending me tapes for years
These songs can make me cry - so full of his hopes and his fears.

And the gods ...

Nurse Cindy, who gave your last shot, knocks 'em dead when you hand her a microphone
Your temperature's burning hot - she'll reel and rock you right into the danger zone.
Your old friends from school - still firing off some great riffs
That rehab counselor's a hell of a wicked tunesmith.

A tiny fraction of music makers ever reach our ears
Like brilliant flashes - they're shining at the top and then they disappear.

Did you know - there's a giant network and it's kinda underground
From hand to hand, on homemade tapes they're passing it around.

Belting out blues on the beltway when they're workday traffic jammin'
Carnegie car resounds, as the imagined fans are standing.

And the gods of the playlist never even had a clue.
