lyrics

I've known you since I was a kid
Loved you ever since then
You taught me rhyme schemes and hope to cope with everything
But I still feel sick

I've seen you in all of your forms
I've seen you quietly performed
I've seen you shout and screamed and hollered
by true heroes and cowards, souls that we're truly torn

I've known you since I was a kid
Loved you ever since then
You taught me rhyme schemes and hope to cope with everything
But I still feel sick
Without you I couldn't live
Without me you'd be alright
I'm sure you'd find another heart to ensnare
As I exhale the air
That would lay me down for the rest of time

I remember what my uncle said
he said, "Boy, don't you give up on this."
He said, "That's some set of tools that you're working with
You better use them while they're at their sharpest"

Then he said, "Oh, no don't cha listen to me.
I'm just old and tired dreaming 'bout dreams
That left long ago on a cruise ship while I was stuck here
'Cuz life got in the way."

Why does life always get in the way?
Why does it seem like we're moving slowly

Sometimes it takes precision
Sometimes it takes real tact
Sometimes it takes something I just don't have

Sometimes it takes something I just don't have
