Ready to bolt at the first glimpse of failsafe,
Signing my cheques with a name that 'aint mine,
And clocking the hours that spin round through the tail end,
There's gold in those hills ahead,
We'll have to get used to it.

You and me both care
You and me both care

Raising a flag at the first glimpse of failsafe,
Another red flag and you're off of the team,
And I left the game to play you at the tail end,
Darling the short of it,
Is we'll just get used to it.

You and me both care
You and me both care

You and me both care
You and me both care
You and me both care
You and me both care

    General CommentOK, a) these lyrics are wrong, and b) this song should be listed under the New Pornographers, as it's not on one of Carl Newman's solo efforts.

    General Comment... aaaaand I'm wrong. Newman apparently recorded an earlier demo version of this song before making some changes & recording it for "Challengers." Don't let crow-eating happen to you, kids! Do your research!
