Cadillac Boy, and all he wants to do is work
How can you make him feel?
I was let down in your photographic whirl
I was in love with it
It's so much harder
Than this
So much harder
Than this

I was in the door
DIdn't feel like doing work
We're staring out
We're starting now
You see me go
You feel like doing work
We're starting now
We're starving now

I let you go, you never put me out
Stop it now
Just stop now...
And say, "I will."
Say, "I will."

Maybe I'm right
Maybe I'm right
Maybe I'm right on, right on, right on

You see me go and you feel like doing work
We're staring out
We're starting now

I let you go, you never put me out
Stop it now
Just stop now
And say, "I will."
Just say, "I will."

Maybe I'm right
Maybe I'm right.
Maybe I'm right on, right on, right on.

I said, "Hey baby, baby, I'll take you tonight."
And I'll see you on the other side, sugar
Your pleasant face, your crooked smile
Maybe tomorrow is a lifetime away...

    General CommentI love the ending, its so upbeat, the lines about the pleasant face and crooked smile just work. And then the way he ends it with the tomorrow line makes me ask myself if he's happy tomorrow is a lifetime away or not.

    This is the song on Nightcrawler that I like to blast in the car. Pete Yorn doesn't get the attention he deserves.

    General CommentI've heard or read rumors that this song is about Pete's brother Rick, who is a very successful manager to stars i.e. Leo DiCaprio and Cameron Diaz. That might explain the line " I was in the door" which might have been what he thought when he was young and green and newly arrived to LA. Maybe he thought he wouldn't have to work so hard but he found out differently. Maybe his brother set him straight and Pete realized he did have to put the work in. He did too; paying his dues playing clubs in LA for quite a few years before he got a record deal. Who knows though. Pete's songs tend to be very abstract.
