Tell me tales of grime and grit
Birds fly high to catch the sun
We can try it when were done

Congregate the fools you know
With your heart and with your soul
Go get lost and feel at home
Makes more sense when you’re alone

Wisdom waits for you to shine
It’s the hardest thing in life
Chasing dreams but getting dust
Stretching friendships stretching trust

I have all the pieces now
Don’t ask why and don't ask how
Man your silence speaks so much
Stretching friendship stretching trust

All the smaller pieces fit
When the spotlight makes you sweat
Don’t behave like this and fret
What you gives is what you get

Wisdom waits for you to shine
It’s the hardest thing in life
Chasing dreams but getting dust
Stretching friendship stretching trust

I’m not trying to be your friend
I’m not trying to comprehend
Where you've been and where I went
What we did is what we meant

It seems priceless and insane
I've got room to put your name
On my shoulder where you lean
When it suits you and its clean

Wisdom waits for you to shine
It’s the hardest thing in life
Chasing dreams but getting dust
Stretching friendship stretching trust

Man I’m trying to break through
I feel I don’t know you
When did eggshells soak your skin?
When did ce around get thin?

If we round up everything
Past and present everything
Lines don’t cross and ties don’t break
We have given now we take

Wisdom waits for you to shine
It’s the next thing on your mind
Chasing dreams that will come true
When you do the things you do

And I’ll be with you to the last
All the demons in our past
Maybe then we'll stop and think
Maybe then we'll have that drink

Satisfy me with your wit
Tales of grime and tales of grit!
