about

"We'd be wise to question why we hold a grudge as if it were going to make us happy and ease our pain. It's rather like eating rat poison and thinking the rat will die" -- Pema Chodron

lyrics

Heaven knows I’d take the blame for you
For every lonesome streetlight you shot out
Nothing’s really been the same for you
Since you put your faith in someone who walked out

But there’s something I been trying to say
Please don’t take it the wrong way

It’s an old song you’ve been playing too long
So why not try to lead with something new
It’s an old song you’ve been playing too long
It’s time you put to bed
That tunes been in your head
And wake up easy singing something new

Heaven knows your kind of circumstance
Keeps kicking at your heart night after night
But my darling I think it’s time we danced
To something a little more upbeat tonight

I’m not saying you should burn the tapes
I’m just saying let’s see what difference that it makes

It’s an old song you’ve been playing too long
So why not try to lead with something new
It’s an old song you’ve been playing too long
It’s time you put to bed
That tunes been in your head
And wake up easy singing something new
