Lyrics

They say an honest man’s work makes an honest day’s man.
They never worked at the jobs that I’ve had.
Last years’ Johnny Feel-good , scrapes his cup across bars.
Jailed for selling false dreams from the trunk of his car.
I was taught if I seek, tomorrow I’ll fi nd.
The states shooting crap, and it’s down to a dime.
You say you lost your purse, well I’ve lost my mind.
Left here to think in this moment of time .
Let’s turn out the lights on this moment of time.
I’ll teach you to dance if you help me unwind .
Sway beneath that old sycamore,
stay by your side till the tide eats the shore.
Below snow-capped mountains, somewhere deep in a lab.
They’re thinking of us, unlike they never have.
New fruits, new corns, to keep hunger at bay.
The world gets to live for another fi ne day.
Now it’s one at a time, three sheets to the wind .
Burn down the stage, I’ll never play here again.
My shoes all have scuff marks and I can’t fi nd my tie.
Left second guessing, in this moment of time.
Turn out the lights, on this moment of time .
I’ll teach you to dance, if you help me unwind .
We can sway beneath that old sycamore,
I’ll stay by your side till the tide eats the shore.
Let’s turn out the lights, on this moment of time.
I’ll teach you to dance, if you can help me unwind .
We’ll sway beneath that old sycamore,
Stay by your side till the tide eats the shore.
