The first single from BJSR, released in the summer of 2009. "Play" burst onto the indie music scene thanks to the internet success of its music video, which was shot entirely on an iPhone 3GS in Dayton, OH.

If I'm holding up the world, how can I brush my teeth?
These mountains on my shoulder, I keep getting older,
and I need some sleep.

If the wind and the rain start to complain,
they can get in line.
This song that I sing is the only thing,
that I can write.

So, I play. I play for you.
