West Egg Story (Great Gatsby Tribute)

Waited days on end for a sign
Not even blessed with a single piece of mind
Bought a new wallet so we could spend time
If that's fine, if that's fine

Do you still sit on your porch
On the same wooden swing?
Your feet dangle off the floor
Like puppets on strings

Trying to mind my own business
But my only business is you
Minding my own business
But my only business is you
And I know I'm making more that a pretty penny
'Cause you are a dime

March in rows, keeping in step
Writing this down 'cause I will forget
"Your memory is all that I have left"
I confess, you know I confess

Do you still sit on your porch
On the same wooden swing?
Your feet dangle off the floor
Like puppets on strings

Trying to mind my own business
But my only business is you
Minding my own business
But my only business is you
And I know I'm making more that a pretty penny
'Cause you are a dime

Daisy, Daisy give me your answer do
I'm half crazy, all for the love of you
Daisy, it's Gatsby, and this love's absurd
'Cause the apple of my eye
Is in another orchard

I've seen selfish boys grow into men
Found salvation in noninebriation
Will we ever have that time and location
Ever again, never again

Trying to mind my own business
But my only business is you
Minding my own business
But my only business is you
And I know I'm making more that a pretty penny
'Cause you are a dime
