lyrics

EVERY NORTH HAS ITS SOUTH  
AND EAST HAS ITS WEST...
PROBABLY FOR THE BEST.

DON'T GET LOST WITHIN THE SOUND CHASING YOU BACK
TO AN OLD EASY CHAIR,
WHILE YOUR COMPUTER GLARES, 
GET UP AND HAVE A BEER THEN WALK AROUND

OH WHEN THEY SAY 
GET OUT THE WAY
AND LET THE YOUNGER PEOPLE PLAY
I SAY WAIT.

EVERY TIME I LOOK ON DOWN,
THE GRAYER THE GROUND GETS.
'TILL I HEAR FROM A FRIEND.
YEAH IT SOUNDS LIKE AN OLD ONE, 
BEST ONE I GOT.
CALLS ME ON HIS DRIVE HOME
BEFORE THE KIDS AND WIFE THEY WON'T LEAVE HIM ALONE.

I REMEMBER WHEN WE DROVE ‘ROUND.
JUST TO GET LOST. 
A SMOKE AND A LAUGH
TURNS WITHOUT A PATH
NEWNESS LIKE THAT HAPPENS ONCE IN YOUR PAST.

AND I KNEW IF THERE WAS A PROBLEM, YOU’D HELP ME OUT.
AND I KNEW IF THERE WAS A PROBLEM, YOU’D HELP ME OUT.

WHEN I'M DRIVING THE UPSTATE ...BRIDGES ABOUND
LONG WAY AROUND 
MUCH BETTER THAN THE PLANNED
THINGS I SEE BEGIN TO TRANSCEND

AND ALL THE TURNS FORM A MESSAGE... MUCH LIKE A DARE.
THAT I DON'T WANT TO HEAR
WALK FROM THE COMPUTERS GLARE
MY TEMPER'S BOUND TO FLARE LIKE IT DOES.

AND I KNEW IF THERE’S A PROBLEM, YOU’LL HELP ME OUT.
AND I KNEW IF THERE’S A PROBLEM, YOU’LL HELP ME OUT.

OH WHEN THEY SAY 
GET OUT THE WAY
AND LET THE YOUNGER PEOPLE PLAY
I SAY WAIT…
