lyrics

The shots they go down like little lonely waterfalls
Running all the way down to the last call
And I apologize I never talk this much
Must be the alcohol

The joyful call the doctor says, “the cancer is benign.”
But then again in the end we’re all condemned to die
But then again we’re energy, which will not be destroyed or multiplied

The answers may not be so clear
They may not be, what you want to hear
Oh, baby, what you want to hear
What you want to hear

I’ve always had my sights set as far as I can see
Always believed the words be all that you can be
But I never made a gold record, a million dollars or been a marine

But if my life is a caterpillar not a butterfly
Its o.k., just part of a cycle reaching for the sky
And I think I like it down here
I’ve always had a fear of heights.

Life is short the clock is ticking ever so fast
We don’t need to just sit here and watch the growing grass
So come over here and bring your beer and raise your glass

The shots they go down like little lovely waterfalls
Running all the way down to the last call
And I apologize I never talk this much
Must be the alcohol
And I apologize I never talk this much
Its been a strange day that’s all.
