"Live the life you've dreamed."
-Henry David Thoreau

Hey there cousin, how’ve you been
Haven’t seen you since who knows when
So many things right before my eyes
I’m paralyzed; losing track of time

Why won’t the world just stop spinning
I don’t like the way I’ve been living
Why keep going when you can smell the roses
Live for the moment before it closes
It just don’t seem right
To this old soul of mine

Used to be it was inner beauty
Now it’s what they see in her tiny jeans
Taught to believe in hard work
An honest word is all I know


Times aren’t what they used to be
Rules they break and they bend
But I’ll just let it be
And sing to a record from 1983
