Don't get down
Don't waste time on things that you can't ever change
I know we all do

Write a song
All your new ones are the best you've ever sung
Write another one

And all you need to do
Is get away from everything
Quit this sad old scene
Come back when you feel the need
We'll all be here for you

Don't get let down
Don't spend time with people you don't even like
I know we all do

Write a song
All your old ones don't mean a thing if you don't sing
Any new ones

And all you need to do
Is get away from everything
Quit this sad old scene
Come back when you feel the need
We'll all be here for you

And find something that will make you feel
Like everyday's too short
We're only here for a little while
You'd better make your mark

    I believe he wrote this for friend and fellow musician Howie Beck.
