One time we were in passing
I watched the future
Swirling 'round
Around my head
And this is how it went

You and I both
A long time waiting in lines
Too long to comprehend
We both sat
Waiting in line for the rest of our lives

Yoo hoo, hoo hoo
Forever and after
We went on forever

One time you were inhaling
I saw the smoke rings
Whirling 'round
Your heedless head
You bored me to my death

You and I both
Alongside waiting outside in lines
Too long to comprehend
We both sat in lines
Waiting for the rest of our lives

Yoo hoo, hoo hoo
Forever after
We went on forever

I prefer to sleep alone
I prefer to stay right here
Don't come searching

I prefer the windows up
I prefer the fresher air
And for the record

Yoo hoo, hoo hoo
Forever and
Forever and after
We went on forever
And after
We went on forever

    MemoryI remember hearing them on Purevolume before they released Ordinary Riches. They only had like, a minute of a couple of the songs, yet I was hooked! Love their stuff, and hope they continue to serenade the world with their great music!
