Making the most of the time that you have
Has never been easy,
But you're getting better.
I know, I know.

Doing your best is enough
If you don't know your potential.
With no expectations
you can't go wrong.

I tried to warn you, but it looks like I was wrong.
So I'm glad you weren't home,
or you did not hear the phone.

Now you're up against it,
Time is running out,
And your little lady wants a car and a house.
Style is taking over.
Everybody knows the songs are on their way out.

I tried to warn you, but it looks like I was wrong.
I called to beg you not to write that stupid song.
But as it happens now it's burning up the charts
And breaking hot girls' hearts
As it masquerades as art.

    General Comment"its kind of about the impulse to..theres such a fine line between (um silly as it is to say) art and commerce in rock and roll and that line gets blurred all the time and so as somebody who is trying to make something that you care about later and its not just trying to sell tickets or records or whatever - that impulse creeps in occasionally and so its sort of about the internal struggle to keep it, um real (laughs) without keeping it too real."
