Third Eye Blind - Losing a Whole Year

(Losing a whole year)
(Losing a whole year)
I remember you and me used to spend
The whole goddamned day in bed
(Losing a whole year)
Hiding in your room we'd lay like dogs
And the phone would ring like a joke that's left unsaid
(Losing a whole year)
Rich daddy left you with a parachute
Your voice sounds like money and your face is cute
But your daddy left you with no love and
You touch everything with a velvet glove and
Now you want to try a life of sin
You want to be down with the down and in
Always copping my truths
I kind of get the feeling like I'm being used
And now I realize that you never heard
One goddamned word I ever said
(Losing a whole year)
(Losing a whole year)

I took your stuff and put it in the basement
When I found out what the smile on your face meant
I've seen you pop that check, babe
Craning your neck at my car wreck
And it always seems the juice used to flow
In the car, in the kitchen you were good to go
Now we're stuck with the tube
A sink full of dishes and some aqualube

I remember you and me used to spend
The whole goddamned day in bed

In bed

(Losing a whole year)
And not in defense then you're on the attack
When you start talking, I hear the Prozac
Convinced you've found your place
With the pierced queer teens in Cyberspace
When you were yourself it always tasted sweet
But sour turned into a routine deceit
Well this drama is a bore
And I don't wanna play no more
Go away! Go away!
(Losing a whole year)
I remember you and me used to spend the whole goddamned day in bed

In bed, In bed

I realize this shows my age, but I really love 3EB. They write such amazing powerful lyrics with driving music that makes me just feel amazing. I felt like posting so everyone else can enjoy Third Eye Blind too, haha. Plus, you know those times when you can rewrite a line or two from a song and feel like it came straight from your thoughts, that's always nice.

On a related thought I have Third Eye Blind's greatest hits CD and I'm turning 25 this month... What the hell happened to my growing up years? I'm a quarter of a century old and what do I have to show for it? Well, I could write a whole blog on that I suppose. I like my life - I feel like it's headed in a good direction. I might not make all the right choices, but as long as I'm the one who is making the choices, what is there to regret?
