lyrics

I used to be a radio
I buzzed all day
I didn't say nothing
Made minimum wage, but that's okay
Living for the moment sometimes turns out that way

It wasn't the best of times
It wasn't the worst of times
It wasn't the best of times
It wasn't the worst of times
It wasn't the best of times
It wasn't the worst of times
It wasn't the best of times
It wasn't the worst of times
It just made life a little distant for a while

I used to listen to
Nick Drake in the morning in July
It was an exercise in being one with time
Wishing every damn bird in the country was mine

What's the point of living
Simply
THC and nicotine
Anti-depressants and sunbeams
Which will I go for?
Which will I?

Time has told me to stand by your side
But I better learn to trust the things said by time

You gave up the ghost in seventy-five
While lights were moving in the northern sky

So in order to keep the spirit alive
Put on your sweater, let's go for a drive

You hopeless romantic, the old fashioned kind
A troubled cure for a troubled mind
