Album: This Business of Art.
Finally uploaded a studio version of this wonderful song for all my fellow t&s fans. Made a little slideshow as well :) hope you enjoy!
Showers pounding out a new beat.
I trade my old shoes for new feet,
I grab a new seat.
I don't like the one I got,
The fabric's wearing through,
And it's wearing me out.
You're wearing me down.
Watching old baseball games,
And low budget telethons.
Ain't like watching you yourself,
When you yourself is on.
Got time to wander to waste and to whine,
But when it comes to you,
It seems like I just can't find the time.
So watch your head and then watch the ground,
It's a silly time to learn to swim
When you start to drown.
It's a silly time to learn to swim,
On the way down.
If I gave you my number,
Would it still be the same.
If I saved you from drowning,
Promise me you'll never go away.
Promise me you'll always stay.
Closed down the last local zoo,
I'm gonna win the endless war.
Over who kills the last koala bear,
And who in death will love him more and I.
He grabs me by the hand,
Drags me to the shore and says,
Maybe you don't love me.
But you'll grow to love me even more,
And I well I'm not surprised.
Then they repeat sections from earlier in the song.
