a simple lifetime i spend all my time planning for something instead of doing and the faces pass me by as if they're saying "a year hasn't done that much for you" tell me when i can stop impressing you. pretty girl you're pretty entertaining but you've got nothing on california in this big gray sky, burning out my eyes, take your medicine, but you know it might not work, don't take too much, you know, you just might make it worse, cuz i know, i was half way home before i realized the joke was on me all along and its becoming laughable well i don't have to play your song, hey man you pay too much if you paid at all, how many miles have we gone? it can't be all that hard if you can sum it up in a postcard "sincerely yours" look for comfort in the stars and the sound of your guitar and wonder what its done to you, and visualize what you'll never do, never do, well i was half way home before i realized the joke was on me all along and its becoming laughable, well i don't have to play your song, hey man, you pay too much if you paid at all, i can't decide if i hate it all yet

    General Commenttoo bad the Texas is the Reason line isn't in this version, I love it where Jeff sings "It costs so much I know, well I guess I need to know what it would have felt like to be right". Great, great song! I love playing the acoustic version myself :)
