Back of My Mind

from Neon and Gold by Dan Jacob Wallace

/

lyrics

stay one more night in the back of my mind
can’t quite forget you stuck there in my throat
thrown out just one time too many in one day
12 just to get there, 50 more to stay

play us a song but a real one not your own
we will sing along, whatcha’ say?
you won’t play it our way?

no more reversing of sundown and dawn
just one more look…i’ll be gone
grown ups still play all their old games in the rain
cylinders humming, black crust smoke remains

play us a song but a real one not your own
we will sing along, watcha’ say?
you won’t play it?…go away

i won’t play along, i won’t sing that song
you can’t say i’m wrong to escape
from that old tired dry cliché
