lyrics

If I could ever figure out all the riddles of the wind
Or how come when she falls out of love you seem to fall right in
So tell me now wheres' a good old boy begin to begin
When the walls tick and the clock is closing in

Made it back to Saint Paul in about a day or two
When they put on their Sundays best I grabbed my travelin shoes
Now these days I sit and drink and sing them sad old tunes
About makin it out alive and a lost boys blues

So if you're ever feelin lonesome
Remember that you're better off then me
Cause I ain't nothing now no
But half the man that I used to be

Built ourselves a bonfire down by the sandstone bluffs
I was flyin high for a little while but soon ran out of luck
And it took three weeks of my bein gone for her to start feelin stuck
So I was on my own again by one o'clock

I went on down to the east side of town to get back on my feet
Found a nice little place to stay off Maria and Mclean
Met myself a new girl to love livin over on fifth street
And when she closes her eyes she only dreams of me

So if you're ever feelin lonesome
Remember that you're better off then me
Cause I ain't nothing now no
But half the man that I used to be

Now these days I like to sit and smoke my cigarettes
Drink that robot down till there ain't a drop left
And I'm always shakin hands yeah its a good way to forget
But it opens the door real early to all regrets

So if you're ever feelin lonesome
Remember that you're better off then me
Cause I ain't nothing now no
But half the man that I used to be
