the cycle goes on forever
this is something i can promise you i know
the circle spins 'round forever
progressions just get faster
some of us like to take them slow

but if ever there was a time to listen, listen now
baby, take a bow

your heart is breaking and beating
tears are rolling, you're breathing
you're alive; it's plain to see it on your face
if i'm smiling, don't ask me if i want to go away from this place

there are few places i would be if i didn't want to be
doesn't that make you happy?

ungrateful, unprepared
overattached
silly, naive
easy, too relaxed
but if ever you said i wasn't honest
honest i am now
baby, i'm getting out

this is the saddest thing i think i've ever seen
red, pink, and green
five dollars spent, not for your water or rent
just soap and tea
and those big brown eyes
a last minute surprise for me
i kissed her forehead on my knee
and i thought secretly:
"baby she didn't mean it"

we're running out of numbers
but everyone is happy
the guns and the booze
all the gain and no lose
this is the new year
this is a new year
but if ever you had something to lose at the start of a year
well baby that time is here

shortsighted, gung ho
ready to go
dishonest mostly
but so much hope
inconsiderate, her way
or the road

and for all the times i bit my tongue
hear me out
mama, i'll be singing loud
