Friday Palate Cleanser – Josh Joplin: To All My Friends

It was the winter of our unpaid rent
When everything we had we spent
On stupid things we didn’t need
And everything in between

You were the victim of your point of view
With the faith of saints, you suffered through
Part-time jobs and lousy pot
Sneaking out and getting caught

I’ve been waiting so long
I’ve been wanting to find
Somebody a lifetime leaves behind
Are you happy at last?
Are you happy, at least?
Do you think that you’ll ever find your peace?
Everyone says hi
Everyone says
Hello, hello, hello, hello
Goodbye
Hello, hello, hello, hello
Goodbye

I spent the summer of unrequited love
Singing your name to the stars above
But I never had a chance
I didn’t know my audience

I’ve been waiting so long
I’ve been wanting to find
Somebody a lifetime leaves behind
Are you happy at last?
Are you happy, at least?
Do you think that you’ll ever move back east?
Everyone says hi
Everyone says
Hello, hello, hello, hello
Goodbye
Hello, hello, hello, hello
Goodbye

Goodbye
To the restless changes
We went through that made us strangers
Goodbye
To those who never made it
To all my friends who’ve all but faded
Goodbye
Goodbye

I’ve seen the best minds of my troubled youth
Disappear for lack of proof
That they believed the songs they sung
That they were ever really young

I’ve been waiting so long
I’ve been wanting to find
Somebody a lifetime leaves behind
Are you happy at last?
Are you happy, at least?
Do you think that you’ll ever find your peace?
Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi
Everyone says
Hello, hello, hello, hello
Goodbye
Hello, hello, hello, hello
Goodbye
Goodbye
