Spent my time, 95 up and down back and forth just to see some fine folks I know mostly made up of the same stuff I guess that I am grown up I think that it's a joke but No one else has to live with my mistakes It's time be deliberate, make the right decisions So I'm ditching the new highways Going back to right roads that were built before the great wars cutting in on the coast Dots on maps with dead downtowns Warehouses with broken windows the minutes and the miles are adding up
Didn't even make it down the street so much for your big escape packed up the silliest things those of which no one would ever need If I could I would tell you it's going to better you're going to be fine but I can't so I won't Work harder, do better Throw away your old sweaters don't call your ex lover there is no love here let time make you wiser but don't dare get bitter be happy and healthy but go to bed hungry Work harder, do better but don't think to hard on the cause of events with David Byrne by my side I narrate my life How did I get here and how do you work this thing oh no
I don't want to see another story of success that starts with failure. I want to sit at home and read a book about those that didn't know when to quit. I don't know which side you're on. It's not like you get to choose or, it has anything to do with you.
I've been losing sleep, can't be trusted to hold onto anything I've been digging in deep but I don't think I'm going anywhere There's a boy breaking teeth on aluminum bleachers Trying hard not to step on the cracks Keep your crush a secret atleast you can enjoy it before they go ignore you say it's for your own sake save you from your heart break Brown eyes are boring so are you Hate all your stories they're worse every time through I'm not into settling you're just convenient It won't be the same when this year's through Feet are white and glow Knees are dark and heavy only goes to show im not afraid of a little hard work
You once were bright lit then burned then thrown away Holding to something that someone might say You know you ought to shut them out Holding themselves up by holding you down I was towing a thin line I was hammering just hard as I knew how I told a big lie I thought that you would be by my side I know I know the fault was all my mine I took this to far too many times You weren't there when I needed a friend What should I care anything that you have to say I know I know the fault was all my mine I took this to far too many times You weren't there when I needed a friend What should I care if you're doing okay I was sitting on the shore waiting for my ship to come in All I got was to watch go down
Start a country band and throw away your comfortable clothes. So proud that all you own are button up plaid shirts with embroidered shoulders. I remember when you were singing out your lungs to a crowd full of no one. I was standing in the front and it meant so much.
I was crushed by mechanical kisses and burried by my bitter youth. Learning how to take 2 steps and never think about you. Losing my accent Losing my voice It happens slowly I lost control.
Oh I wish you would just shut up, like a telescope so I could keep you down and forget you I was hoping to keep you near my heart with old cigarettes and lists that never end I wore you down I wore you out the left one always breaks and the right one carries the weight.
