lyrics

I'll serenade the pigeons, I'll sing to the streets,
Busking for my breakfast though it’s not just making ends meet,
I'll sing til I’m hoarse - strum til my fingers can take no more,
But I’m not standing in the rain to watch their loose change hit the floor.

It keeps me alive and keeps me out of line.
It keeps me from wasting away my days and watching the seconds of my life,
Fade away into nothing disappear to the past,
Though i know I’m getting older and these days aren’t gonna last.

These days aren't gonna last.

I’m not seeking fortune i won’t find fame,
But out the corner of your eyes you see someone with hope for better days.
If I’m not chasing a blind sighted dream,
I'm surely just waiting for someone to make a martyr of me.

Make a martyr of me.

Those dreams I never had
And those never laid plans
With a hope for nothing it was just something to do.

No we’re not seeking fortune - we won’t find fame
Didn’t pick up this guitar - so We could play their game
Won't buy into the cliche - of what im supposed to be
I'll stand here and sing and they'll take or leave me.

Doing it for the love of it,
just doing it for the fuck of it,
there's nothing we’d rather do.
