I wrote the same song a hundred times
By '98, it began to rhyme
I flew back home when my father died
Said I couldn't stay, I guess I lied

(chorus)
All the rock star jobs are taken
So I sleep a lot better at night
And nothing rings in my head
When I climb into bed
And I kiss my sweet baby goodnight

Ten years ago I was 24
I had a tiny apartment with hardwood floors
Trying to get an art degree
Sit around and watch TV
Had nobody, I was new in town
Didn't really know my way around
Everything was going down the chute
I gave the student loan check to a prostitute
The air was brisk and the night was dark
I walked downtown through Loring Park
Didn't know where I was going
Wanted to be Leonard Cohen
Dark and brooding, full of soul
Not some third rate Billy Joel
(repeat chorus)

I'm clean and sober, six months straight
Lost some hair, gained some weight
things didn't really go as planned
I'm playing bass guitar in a wedding band
But here's the part I laugh about
She held her breath and stuck it out
She's my favorite therapy
I'm her little nobody
(repeat chorus)
