lyrics

Everybody talking ‘bout time going by
I’m getting tired of that
The thing we done, the shit we seen
The one we loved, the room where we had sat

Anytime somebody say - I got a plan
Anytime somebody say - I got a dream
Every time somebody try to take a ride
You say your tire’s flat

But you were my baby then
Everything was possible way back when

Everybody talking ‘bout a thing they lost
It’s getting sad and old (getting tired of that)
The one that died the one that lied
The one that jumped overboard (getting tired of that)
(Anytime somebody say) I got it nailed
(Anytime somebody say) I got it figured out
(Every time somebody try) I got it sussed
Then your time’s run out

But you, you were a baby then
Everyone was beautiful way back
Now you want to be beautiful now?
I’m gonna show you how

Everybody’s talking to themselves so loud
I’m getting blotted out (getting tired of that)
How could anything be so important
to keep talking about? (getting tired of that)
(Anytime somebody say) Hey you hear me man?
(Anytime somebody say) Get out of my way
(Every time somebody say) You want a piece of me?
I turn around

You, you were just crazy then
You were a baby then
And you want to be beautiful now
Somebody show me how

I’m getting tired of that
