Four in the afternoon I should be up and gone soon. This is the shirt that I'm wearing out. Torn at the elbow from too much football and one size too small all around.
Stretched shoulder to shoulder, a stretch from soda to soda. And I slept to the radio over the wind in the morning. I'm turned like an elbow; a slumber after the parting.
Red faced from too much sun in too mayb summers.
And your state fair mirror of John Taylor saw the whole thing.

    General Commentone of my favorites...
    the vocals are so rad, and the beat is emotionally sound.
    the ending is great!

    General Commentthis is my favourite too, it's just P.R at their very, very best. It's got nothing on The Great Union Divide or Fates Got A Driver thought but then I spose no-one ever outgrows their influence!

    General Commentwell this whole album gives me chills but i think that this song is probably my favorite on there. this is about the routine life the singer has in the summer. things are changing and turning ( like an elbow) but the singer continues to keep some things constant
