  • Well, you can think it's funny how I spend my money
    But, girl, you know I pay the view
    And I seem to be unable to sit down at the table
    And satisfy your wanting too, alright

    And my backstage pass is mud and grass
    Free drinks inside a thunderstorm
    And my list of dreams is long, it seems
    We can burn 'em all to keep us warm

    I swear this ain't a love song, that would be too much
    Read it like a letter, take it like a punch
    Wastin' all our time, water into wine
    Life is gonna beat you down
    And stand up tall and straight and don't you hesitate
    About about reading your own tale, ooh-ooh

    I can't tell you what I've learned, I know that things have burned
    A hole in the tip of my tongue
    And lik? Jesus on the cross and red tomato sauc?
    My words are better left unsung
    Well, I sure as hell not good as you
    But I ain't the one who's been mislead
    Well, you can cut your hair, brother, I don't care
    Is there anything you haven't said?

    I swear this ain't a love song, that would be too much
    Read it like a letter and take it like a punch
    Wastin' all our time, water into wine
    Life is gonna beat you down
    And stand up tall and straight and don't you hesitate
    About about reading your own tale

    I spin the wheel, it's how I feel
    I don't even know what to say
    You said it first, doin' it rehearsed
    Do you feel it driftin' away?
    For you and me
    For you and you and me

    Wastin' all our time, water into wine
    Life is gonna beat you down
    And stand up tall and straight and don't you hesitate
    About about reading your own tale
    Wastin' all our time, water into wine
    Life is gonna beat you down
    And stand up tall and straight and don't you hesitate
    About about reading your own tale Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
