A song about going out in ball of flame...

Lyrics

Lyrics

 

 

Now I’ve, been thinking about space, been thinking about time

And how it all relates

I think back, to when it all began, with nothing but a void,

Then a big bang

Now my life, has traveled the same lines

I dabble in space, and I waste a lot of time

But I’ve yet, to get the big bang

And even Stephen Hawking knows the nature of man

 

It’s who we are, not where I’m going

No matter how far, or where I’ve been

From every star, a light keeps glowing

Though it’s as far as time has been

 

Now I’m, in a complicated place

I got middle aged hair, and adolescent taste

I’ve got a repossessed mind but it serves me well

And has a good time

Now I’ve, got imaginary friends

But they never come around, when I most need them

and I’ve got, an apologetic fist

It’s just a matter of time before it goes off like this

 

It’s who we are, not where I’m going

No matter how far, or where I’ve been

From every star, a light keeps glowing

Though it’s as far as time has been

 

I wanna burn bright, bright, burnin bright

I just want to shine, burnin bright

I wanna burn bright, bright, burnin bright

I just want to shine, burnin bright

 

Now I, get a sharp denim twist

Whenever you walk by and brush my hip

I won’t fight, cause I can’t resist

I’m just a little confused, how it came to this

Now I am, a little smarter than I seem

But as for hittin on the road, I’m 0 for 17

since then, I’ve been propositioned twice

once by my hand and the other my wife

 

chorus

 

sometimes, I’ve just got to stop,

take a deep breath, have a walk around the block

as I try to read between the lines,  they conspire to meet

In the corner of my eyes

Now my life, has been misplaced, it’s no longer my own

Any doubts have been erased

But I’ve got, a sophisiticated plan

I’m gonna keep dancing til they break up the band

 

chorus
