about

I had a cold when I wrote this and I thought, "I've never heard anyone with an obvious cold sing on a song". So I did it. I now have the world record.*

I had to hurry up and write the lyrics that day before I got better and my voice went back to normal.
*I don't

lyrics

I was caught in a summer breeze
it knocked me right down to my knees
your hand wasnt there to squeeze to save the night
the wind whistles through the trees
stopping once to feel the peace
the smell of dirty knees makes it nice

i moved on for good
was misunderstood
no one likes...
a know it all

i was a justice of the peace
never made anyone wash my feet
i keep my rules clean and neat
and watched them fail

never me anyone i couldnt keep
from beaming up right off the street
wish i could give them a good nights sleep
before they tire

i moved on for good
was misunderstood
no one likes...
a know it all

i see you on a one night stand
with a mullah from pakistan
a tattoo on her hand says "L'Chaim"

caught by the skin of my summer teeth (summa go this way, some a go that way)
the smell nearly knocked me right off my feet
time enough to take a beat
to catch a line

i moved on for good
was misunderstood
no one likes...
a know it all

honesty can be really funny without having to try to be comedy if what you're saying makes you vulnerable or breaks an expectation people have for you ... more
