playNot and Have Grown

from Tumble Down Slow (2004) BUY

the sun set too early for my eager taste

my lungs hadn’t gotten their fill
if my beating heart let me lie in this bed

another day would pass standing still
so i walked out in the moon light, hands in my pockets

as she walked by i gave her a smile
and i stuck to the side way ‘cause it was going my way
and the world had decided to cater to me for a while

as i roam – so much to show how i’ve not and have grown

well i saw her in a smoky bar

decided to give it a try
i threw a few back, gathered my courage

as the minutes they passed slowly by
her name was melina

and she swore that she’d seen me before
and as i walked her back to her place she smiled as she kissed me
took both my hands and pulled me in through her front door

as i roam – so much to show how i’ve not and have grown

it’s the boys’ night out on the town and we’re throwin them down
just as fast as our wallets can spare
and we talk loud and we’re in a crowd
the bouncers, bar tenders, and boy friends are starting to stare
dave wants to fight but i’m holding him tight
and we’re kicked out into the streets with our friends
but we feel great and we don’t hesitate to hop in a cab
drive off to the next bar and start it all over again

as i roam – so much to show how i’ve not and have grown
