At Least I'm Not Like Jonathan Carver

from Live at The Great American Music Hall by Tadpoles



From the Tadpoles 1996 studio album, Far Out


Aren't you tired of coming down

You want to float not be around

Aren't you tired

Aren't you tired

His name appeared in lights that day

Her neon dress began to fray

Don't you know what its like

Don't let it be an oversight

When you're lazy lying on some grass

Following all the dusty paths

You watch the sky slide past your face

When morning comes you've won the race

Then parachute land on the floor

You hit the ground feeling sore

Your knees buckle but you give it more

Step inside your first balloon

Blow it up and make it bloom
