it seems like everybody is a singer-songwriter
I guess its not hard, i'm not gonna lie to you:
you just need a guitar and a story, some chords with a melody
a little power and money, rhythm and harmony
and its not a bad thing but it sucks when the songs they sing make you feel cheated
after actually conversing with the author of that song that used to mean something
it just goes to show that you should probably never meet your heroes,
not that i have any anyway
idols just seem to get in the way of your own thoughts and opinions as you adopt their gospel as truth
and i don't think that will fade with youth.
youth seems to me to be an excuse and a reason
to explain why you don't know what they say you'll learn as a 'man'
that 'one day' upon realising maturity when you can talk down to those of a lesser age
when actually you've really only found how to gauge your control
over those who are on the same page as you once were, back in your own day
"way back in the hey day"
may this be last i hear about someone who wants to stay in the past
a place that always looks better in hindsight
a place where you don't need to make light
of situations that just might have been a lot worse
and never actually worked out alright
