"Good Friends Bad Habits" as written by and Michael Kinsella....
Good friends with bad habits,
What am I to do?
They're literary romantics,
They fuck like wilde,
And indulge like hemingway.

I've good friends with bad habits
And a tendency towards negligence.
Just petty thieves and addicts,
That don't hurt anyone
But they'll burn anyway.

Well sometimes,
Like every time
A train passes,
I get jealous of the long nights,
And blurred lights,
The red eyes,
The bar fights.
Where in the hell am I?
And how did I get here?
And which way to the nearest train?

Well sometimes,
Like every time she breathes,
I embrace my routine.

I've good friends with bad habits.
What am I to do?
They're literary romantics,
They'll fuck like wilde,
And die like hemingway.

    mike kinsella is married now..and he's thinking back on how he misses his younger days of partying with friends who have not settled down..

    in those lines he's saying that every day with her confirms his commitment..and he's content to be settled with her.
