lyrics

Back when Drinking wasn't y'alls style
Back when girls weren't worth our while
Back when time was always free
Working on cars reading magazines
Stupid arguments for conversation
Heavy metal on the radio station
My friends all changed and no they're gone
I'm all alone I'm pressing on

Chorus:
And all I really want's just a coke and a smile
It's been to long, it's been a while
All I really want's just a coke and a smile
It's been to long, it's been a while
I'm so lonely, so tired, so blue
So lonely, so tired, how bout you?

Back when I had a mom that cared
Back when my cousin had a dad that was there
Simple things one takes for granted
A whole made lunch a mom made sandwich
Getting picked up after school
Extra covers when the nights are to cool
I guess I'm stronger I don't know
I just don't let my feelings out the door

Chorus:

Now my life's based on GPA
That's how they say I'll be somebody someday
I'd like to think I was someone now
I'd like to think that I knew how to
Make it through my twenty hour day
And at the end have something to say
But it just seems I'm passing time
I've got a progress pause till the end of my life

about

Bart Budwig Moscow

Bart Budwig grew up on the Idaho Palouse, with a pawn shop trumpet and a heart as big as a skyscraper. Bart learned melody from jazz charts, and learned that fault-lines in big hearts create drifting continents and forge new mountains. Everyone close to him disappeared, whether to death or Texas, and from Texas he got a letter from Waylon Jennings entreating him to pick up a guitar and a pen. ... more
