I am a dad I am not cool In my mini van that is blue Drive to the mall With my dear spouse To buy some crap for the house Circling the parking lot Clouds seem to open up There she is waiting at starbucks Guinvere in raybans and chucks Radiant, a modern day Helen Waiting for a suburban dad I have two girls they are so cute In their matching pink tu tu tu’s At the weekend drive to dance class we’ve got a 45 minute pass She walks back from dropping off Clouds seem to open up There she is waiting at starbucks Guinvere in raybans and chucks Radiant, a modern day Helen Waiting for a suburban dad

You don't have to spend your time with me You don't have to spend your time with me If there's somewhere else you'd rather be You don't have to spend your time with me If you wanna go, just let me know If you wanna go, just let me know You don't have to go, if you don't wanna go But if you wanna go, just let me know I can take it You don't have to spend your time with me

Pass It On 02:37
We’ve had the time of our lives Your patient ears and a thousand nights There is a new day rising It is not ours but we’ve got damn good seats Pass it on try to let go Pass it on Pass it on try to let go Pass it on Johnny steps to the scene With golden heart and songs to sing 20 years has come and gone New kid steps up looks a lot like John Pass it on try to let go Pass it on Pass it on try to let go Pass it on

Friday Night 02:28
When we were young we all were told But no one ever imagines that they will get old Mom and dad they seemed so sad But with you around it really doesn’t seem that bad Ooh there’s nowhere I’d rather be On a Friday night Than with you cozy at home with me On a Friday night Skip the bar and miss the show We’ve got our cozy socks on and David Attenborough Friends inquire on plans tonight But we’re all wrapped up in a bottle of wine Ooh there’s nowhere I’d rather be On a Friday night Than with you cozy at home with me On a Friday night

some girls like to go to parties others like to be alone some girls like to stay up late other like to stay at home this girl’s riding home on her bike she’s got silence on her mind and a quiet cup of tea caught within her cozy world reading about hero girls and listening to the quiet radio introverted girl Isabella Isabella Some girls thrill to conversation Other find it overwhelms Some girls like a big night out Others like to be at home This girls spinning records in her room She’s got Iggy Pop and Lou And Ziggy Stardust too Caught within her cozy scene Reading creem magazine And dreaming of a concert far away introverted girl Isabella Isabella introverted girl Isabella star constella apple of my eye I tell ya I love you

Rotate 01:16
Did you stand here when the world turned 16 hours ago? I detect the hint of perfume Brushed across new fallen snow Did you look back Across the ocean, the mountains and the sea 8 more hours will rotate you back around the world to me And this rotation is on my mind As moonbeams bend in Greenwich time if I could step out of history 8 more hours will rotate you back around the world to me Did you pause here did you exhale Did you think of me Did you look up at bright Polaris Hung upon his dark marquee Did you look back Across the ocean, the mountains and the sea 8 more hours will rotate you back around the world to me And this rotation is on my mind As moonbeams bend in Greenwich time if I could step out of history 8 more hours will rotate you back around the world to me

You’re talking out the side of your head And you’ve got a comeback ready for anything that’s said and you think the thoughts your think are well thought through But you’re just repeating stuff that someone said to you And now, I find, You waste my time Perilous is the path you weave From inaction to reaction you interleave your opinion’s information you mistook While flipping through aquaintant nonsense on facebook And now, I find, You waste my time

Said that you're leaving Well I heard that one before This time you mean it Please don't let me block the door Hey, Chicken Little You're a track set on repeat The sky ain't fallin' I think you need to get some sleep It's no surprise I roll my eyes I wave goodbye To all your lies You play the victim Like a loser plays their hand Just keep in hitting When the book suggests you stand You're crying wolf now and the consequence ain't cheap Your bridges burning and a river running deep With all your lies I roll my eyes It's no surprise I roll my eyes I wave goodbye to all your lies I wave goodbye to all your lies The sky ain't fallin'

My Girl 01:11
My baby is on fire she give me wild desire She got the best dance moves and all the vinyl too Schoolin all the moms and droppin atom bombs Kickin so much ass she’s the demitasse She’s a jewel in the rough she's a diamond in the dust She's the metaphor that I’ve been searchin for She got the heart of gold and the eye of style She got the curvin hips and the killer smile She got the des talons and on the corporate phone kicking ass today, takin all your names She’s a jewel in the rough she's a diamond in the dust She's the metaphor that I’ve been searchin for that one's my girl, that girl's my girl

The way we age is so unkind Aching backs and fading minds You could forgive for giving up It would be so easy but The sun is out the garden's up The backyard’s looking good enough For you and I to keep this up And hold on one more year Every day we’ve pushing back We lose ground they pick up slack Is it so strange to think about? Cutting bait and getting out? But the sun is out the garden's up The backyard’s looking good enough For you and I to keep this up And hold on one more year one more year...

When I was 19 my roommate brought home an LP Said man this record was made for you In the summer was the greatest song I’d ever heard And I knew what I had to do Kurt and Lulu and Duff and mighty Kim Were the greatest band in history Kurt and Lulu and Nate and mighty Kim Still the greatest band in history The fastbacks… When I was 21 I booked a show at a club For the fastbacks and beat happening That was the greatest thing that I’d ever seen And I knew what I had to be Kurt and Lulu and Rusty and mighty Kim Were the greatest band in history Kurt and Lulu and Mike and and mighty Kim Still the greatest band in history The fastbacks…

as we approach the pass we all increase our speed slow river below us of dust and snow and heat headed east again as the road goes straight the desert shows it heat deep reservoir of my heart since 1973 headed east again

My E String 01:53
Friday night will find us Playing music again A room full of strangers becomes a room full of friends And just when everything is going fine The same damn thing happens one more time My E string is out of tune and the song’s got a minute left to play I wish that I could tune this thing But everyone is staring at me Everyone is smiling and moving in time to the song The room starts to warm up and one guy’s singing along And just when everything is going grand The same damn thing happens once again My E string is out of tune and the song’s got a minute left to play I wish that I could tune this thing But everyone is staring at me When you’re out of tune You know just what to do But you don’t have time to do it When you’re out of tune The audience knows it too And you’re so screwed My E string is out of tune and the song’s got a minute left to play I wish that I could tune this thing But everyone is staring at me

Dumbass 04:02
Well, I can’t believe that stupid line And I can’t believe that you’d believe that I’d believe that that’s alright You call me up when I am at home Even though I told you 20 times I will not fix your iphone With every tête-à-tête you’re further driving me away and I keep dreaming of the day I walk but I guess I’ll bide my time notwithstanding and despite boss you are completely out of your... The weekly 1 on 1’s fill me with dread No matter what we talk about I come out and I’m shakin my head What the hell were we discussing now? I’m laughing at your jokes But just remember that I’m not your pal With every tête-à-tête you’re further driving me away and I keep dreaming of the day I walk but I’ guess I’ll bide my time notwithstanding and despite boss you are completely out of your mind I’m working for you, but you don’t own me dumbass…
