I used to see you walking home from school
all by your lonesome as a general rule
so sad, but kids can be so cruel
things are different now, you’ve made the scene
you’re on the cover of some magazine
I knew you when, but this is oh so now

And if we chance to meet
so sweet
‘cause baby you can hear the buzz like bees in a hive
now that’s a real high five

I play some jazz for a dwindling crowd
sing Deacon Blues and drink your big Black Cow
well I’d, toss it in, but I don’t know how
I’ve never been the man I used to be
a broken branch out of the family tree
so bad, they had to cut me down

But I can be discreet
let’s skip a beat
‘cause baby I can make your senses come alive
and that’s a real high five

From what they tell me,
it’s lonely at the top
life’s a whirl
but for a while we can make it stop

“We’ll have to do this all again sometime”
I hear the words but read between the lines
oh yeah, the planets do align
that was fun, but now it’s crystal clear
she and I exist on different spheres
curtain calls, it’s time to take my bow

But for a little while
we smiled
at second thoughts and might get caughts, the keys to survive
another real high five

And the band’s fascinating story of artistic determination and friendships imbues its music with inspiring truths of life. ... more
