lyrics

I have the dream a lot these days I wake up and my teeth are stuck together,
one frozen mass too big for my mouth, have to break it open and the blood goes spurting everywhere as crooked jags cut right into my gums.

And I try to wait around,
try to hold off till the morning though my mouth keeps filling up with blood,
I try to wait around,
try to hold off till the day when you'll be here and we can sing.
And we'll go
la da da da da da

And often times I realize I've no idea what I'm doing with my life,
and I think about the people who I went to school with, most of them successful, some have wives and kids already, which I can't imagine in my life,
though maybe I should try.

But for now I'll wait around,
try to hold off till the morning and tell you bout my insecurities,
I try to wait around,
try to hold off till the morning when you'll be here and we can sing.
And we go
la da da da da da

And lately when I try to write a new song it seems nothing ever comes,
and I've tried out all my old tricks told you all about my dreams and fears, but nothing seems to work, and I'm tired of these same four chords, and I would give most anything for one pure original thought,
or at least a catchy counter melody.

But for now I'll wait around,
try to hold off till the morning end up cursing into my guitar,
I try to wait around,
try to hold off till the day when you'll be hear and we can sing.
And we'll go
la da da da da da
la da da da da da
etc.
