i thought i would know what to do when the time came
i thought i would know when to leave when the time came
i thought i could recognize the sign
i thought i would know when the planets had aligned
i was wrong, i didn't know anything at all
i was wrong, i didn't know anything at all

saving all the letters you wrote
and i'm all alone for the first time
and i can't help but wonder
what's gone wrong

then fell asleep under a tree
got woken up by birds and bees
they're hard at work, but they're hardly workin'
there might be rain, but not for certain

followed the trail to the wild flowers
i cut as many as i could handle
i was workin' hard, but hardly workin'
i heard the train, but not for certain

oh, we're living in the wild life
we're living in the wild life

fell asleep under a tree,
got woken up by birds and bees,
they're hard at work, but they're hardly workin',
there might be rain, but not for certain

    General CommentGreat song on a great album. First time I saw them, this was the song that made me decide to become a fan/ buy there shirt. The part after all the chaos and it breaks into the "fell asleep part" was life changing.
