lyrics

Here’s to the drivers and we thank them every time
When in your fancy town I’d leave my life behind
And nothing was too small to please a love of mine

I was human perfection - obsessed, agitated, so hungry
Brilliantly selfish I could let you down so easily

And nothing was too small to please a love of mine
When I was good
And I could concentrate on one thing at a time
When I was good
And I could drink a beer and sleep for a whole night

Revellers take o’er my street
Bombs couldn’t disturb your sleep
I listen to their songs as they retreat

And I was justified without being employed
When I was good
And I could filter all of life derive the joy
When I was good
And we could go to bed without getting destroyed

Revellers take o’er my street
Bombs couldn’t disturb your sleep
I listen to their songs as they

We’re shadows of our former selves
And we’re wiser and we tell ourselves
We’re but ghosts of our former selves
And we’re better as we kid ourselves
