about

This is me bangin away on acoustic guitar into my little tape machine trying to re-create the sound of those mid-period Beatles records. I may have missed by a bit but I had fun not getting there.

lyrics

Longer Than A Day

What did you do today ?
You've already wasted
half your life

Did you have fun today ?
Imagining the things
that you just might do

when you find the time to
do when you get caught up to
all of the time that
passed you by

What did you say today ?
Did you believe a single word
you heard.

Wasn't it strange today
To see the people
stuck inside their world

Gossip about the life
they know that they threw away
Grumble and Stumble
on their way.

If a lifetime
Is a long time
Is a long time
Longer than a day ?

Longer than a day
Longer than a day
Longer than that afternoon
When everything came true.

What will you do
When you have the time to
When you get caught up to
all of the time that passed you by

If a lifetime
Is a long time
Is a long time
Longer than a day ?

Longer than a day
Longer than a day
Longer than that afternoon
When everything came true.

If you had a dollar saved
For each and every day
you've been alive

you'd have a pot of gold
about 10,000 dollars tucked away

and 10,000 days to spend it
on all of the newfound friends
that haven't a clue
what it means to hide your dreams.

a lifetime
Is a long time
Is a long time
Longer than a day ?
