Lap Steel FTW


Rolling hills and three band bills in the July heat,
and hipster blues with "Mom" tattoos on everyone I meet.
Down at the watering hole the jukebox is free.
Well, this city used to call me by my name, but it's forgotten me.

Sleep away the summer,
Living under covers
Just waiting for our lives to start.

Sleepless nights and fixed gear bikes swallow me whole,
And Facebook Likes and the north turnpike are as far as I'm willing to go.
Friends keep hanging around--yeah, let the good times roll,
But this trail I've been rambling down, I think it's seen me before.

Sleep away the summer,
Living under covers,
Just waiting for it all to start.

Get in my ride, we'll go downtown to see the show,
And late at night take 2222 on home.
