lyrics

I won't make it to the top
But my friends won't let me drown
I don't quite know how to swim
but they won't let me drown

I don't quite know how to live
but my friends know a good time
I don't quite know how to write
where every word's right and rhymes

Twenty years, hey, what the hell do I know?
Shave against the grain and bleed on the bedroom floor

Sunburnt sunshine and the rain
in bottles on the shelf
open them at any time
and feel them for myself

Windswept valley evergreens
grown tightly in a row
cut one down and tie it up
and I have something to show

Twenty years, hey, what the hell do I know?
Shave against the grain and bleed on the bedroom floor

I won't make it to the top
But my friends won't let me drown
I don't quite know how to swim
but they won't let me drown
