Go inside Coincide Whatever makes it feel Like it's real Talk to god Talk to Mom Whatever makes you know You're on your own Where are you? Are you somewhere I can't see? Life goes on, that's the hard part, life goes on Life goes on, that's the worst part, life goes on Hope you are Not too far to live outside the realm of the past Astronauts Whiskey shots We're spinning out in space, forever dance You don't like anyone You don't want anyone You don't need anyone
Wendolyn 02:52
I found your sister in Austin and Denver She's crossing the country to spread your dust And I don't remember the things that I told her I just know that it's not enough But, Wendolyn, Wendolyn This ain't a song for him. And every picture I flip through to find you Still ain't the same as having you here And every gesture up on social media's like gentle, little whispers in our collective mourning ear I'm head on down south now head on down to Tennessee I'm gonna find your family Let them know they've always got a piece of me
Oh, all of your friends will let you down There's just no avoiding it, You might as well get used to it, it's ok, it's ok You thought you knew them as well as the back of your hand and your own hometown But the back of their hand is all you're familiar with now They don't know what you're going through, They're too busy going through it too Oh, your friends will let you down, have no regrets and that smile on your lover's face, will blow away and dissipate, like smoke from your cigarettes just like the money you made to invest in things to burn you just keep walking crookedly while the world takes another tilted turn There are no guitars in the future, just computers. And, the folks in your heart, you won't see them, but you'll never be apart. Oh, all of your friends will let you down as long as all of your friends are still around.
Play your part, If you can start it, I'd really like to see Do what you will, and I will stay still, and you will come back to me Every year goes aching by and you're more and more in need Show me how, you know how You're gonna show me You've made your point It's not a point, but I know what you mean Do what you will, and I will stay still, and you will come back to me Show me how, you know how, you will come back to me you will come back to me.
I hear all the old singers all call you out by name They are somehow right about you in every single way I know someday you'll wind up with an older man I'll always be too young to understand While commissioning your entourage, they will christen you in camouflage 'Cause you'd never want the world to see that you were once at war with me. You're still the first one I'd call When I just don't want to be here at all The queen of the underground is giving me the runaround We'd be drinking from your golden cup if you just decided to wake up. Dance with me tonight before you leave me for some foreign guy Please pour me one more drink and pull be back before I pass the brink I need to get out of here, help me get out of here.
