  • Tears on the sleeve of a man
    Don't want to be a boy today
    Heard the eternal footman
    Bought himself a bike to race
    And Greg he writes letters and burns his CDs
    They say you were something in those formative years
    Hold onto nothing as fast as you can
    Well still pretty good year
    pretty good year

    Maybe a bright sandy beach
    Is gonna bring you back, back, back
    Maybe not so now you're off
    You're gonna see America
    Well let me tell you something about America
    Pretty good year
    Pretty good

    Some things are melting now
    Some things are melting now
    Well,hey what's it gonna take till my baby's alright
    What's it gonna take till my baby's alright

    And Greg he writes letters with his birthday pen
    Sometimes he's aware that they're drawing him in
    Lucy was pretty your best friend agreed
    Well still pretty good year
    pretty good
    pretty good year Writer/s: TORI ELLEN AMOS
