To be the one that she writes of in books by candlelight,
To be the one she speaks of as we go on and on
About the dawn and all the things that turn us on
And aren't we what we have been made?

An essay due on Langston Hughes autobiography
And gifts to buy before I leave
And we go on and on about geography, directions, maps,
And which city we will be in on New Year's Eve.

Too much time left on my hands?
Too many hands on my time
And the radio plays what it wants to hear so I'm out of here.
I'm out of here this year.
Too much time on my hands?
Too many hands on my time
And I'm running out of time and out of lines
And a college boy should study more
But I'm so bored with teachers that teach summaries
And summarise our lives.

The radio plays what it wants to hear so I'm out of here.
Someone tell them that I'm out of here.
I'm out of here this year.
