SONG FOR THE EIGHTIES
Patty Griffin


As I'm hanging out over the river below

on a rickity bridge that wants to let go

As I'm hanging out over the rocks and the ruts

well to tell you the truth I never think about much

tell you the truth I never think about us


Scientific explanation

you live and breathe your life in abbreviation

You sacrifice and pay your fine

to the god of single minds


It's never gonna be wherever you look

never gonna need whatever you took

Don't do nothing to give you no shame

Ask me again and I'll tell you the same

Ask me again and I'll tell you the same


It's the theory of relativity

I'm watching the clock it's looking back at me

you never get enough time to get it all done

yeah at the end of the day every day has won

end of the day every day has won


Some will find that unemployment

is the the only time in their lives of enjoyment

you were never meant to run this race

what you need's at your own pace


Never gonna be wherever you look

never gonna need whatever you took

Don't do nothing to give you no shame

ask me again and I'll tell you the same

ask me again and I'll tell you the same
