I wanna be an actress.
Right now I'm a waitress living in Ft. Lauderdale and I think, I think, I think I'm so creative.
And do you think you could be friends with a waitress?
I'm gonna be an actor.
Right now I'm just a valet driver on some busy street. I'm always playing the part but never getting to the point. I wish my schedule was filled up with all appointments.
I meant to say it all so differently. I just think I'd look better on a bigger screen with all of the people and all their advice
The probably highs say "you gotta have a guy," cause things don't look up on the Sunnyside without a little assistance from a friend. I found the answer and then I said, "I feel weightless"
One dimension isn't fine, I need two because it takes a little more to get through to you. And I ran into my former self - she looked so little not high at all. She looks so good now that I got faithless. There's no telling what I'll do in this state of mind, with this point of view and I ran up all the tabs with my close friends just to show them that I have become reckless

    General CommentFrom an interview with the Colorado Springs Independant (Q = question, IG = Ian Graham [bass/vocals]

    Q: "Fort Lauderdale" is a catchy song. Have you ever actually been friends with a Fort Lauderdale waitress?

    IG: No, I don't actually know anybody there. A kid at a show of ours was from there and really excited that I was gonna have this great Fort Lauderdale story. But I know nothing about Fort Lauderdale.

    Q: If you ever do play there, will you scream, "How you doin', Fort Lauderdale?"

    IG: Yeah, and then we'll just play that song for 45 minutes, over and over. Sell some records.
