I've been trying to take a break from reading Kerouac
But here I am with "Maggie Cassidy" again for the third time
And I thought by now I would be moved out of my parents' house
And have a place in Fishtown with my friends

But even so
I seem to be
Exactly where I need to be
I'm finally meeting some solid people
And for me that's really a first
Playing songs for friends who really listen to the words

And I'll never say that overused phrase
"Not so much these days"

It was 3 a.m. and I couldn't stop typing
Hitting "Send" took a lot of nerve
It's alright that she never replied when I reached out to her
So I set my alarm for 7:30
Prepared to wake up a wreck
One year before I never would have gotten out of bed

But now
I seem to be
Exactly where I need to be
I'm finally meeting some solid people
And for me that's really a first
Playing songs for friends who really listen to the words

And I'll never say that overused phrase
"Not so much these days"

Messages from friends say, "You should play this show with us"
They'll never know how grateful I am

From the sidewalk, to the backyard, to the basement
Refusing to let this end
Burning the fuses at both ends

And I hope we never say that overused phrase
"Not so much these days"

We'll never say that overused phrase
"Not so much these days"
