Hopefully I’m leaving soon
Out of this city, this apartment. One bath no bedroom
Head for higher ground
Searching for that somewhere where my soul can still be sound

Been searching a long time
Lots of rhythm but feel no rhyme
Feel the rhyme when the music’s near
People coming over to hear

Funky reggae song
Keeps me rocking all of the day and all the night long
With one love to share
Take this joint man and please pass me one more beer
Wake up in the morning with a swollen lung
Swollen feet, swollen head with a swollen tongue
Got no rhythms to pass the time

But the waiting feels fine
Why do we stay awake so late?
Why do we do the things we do?
Why do we flake and perpetrate?
I want to spend all my time with you

Smiling as I face the sun
Beat down on me, take away bad deeds I’ve done
Don’t justify me. Lord knows I’ve done wrong
But give me one more chance, one new place to start from

So when we’re partying later tonight
I want to see no fuss and no fight
Keep the chain cause I’m in the clear
But hey man, pass me a beer

Why do we stay awake so late?
Why do we do the things we do?
Why do we flake and perpetrate?
I want to spend all my time with you
Why do we get faded, have to hide?
Why do we gate ourselves inside?
I wouldn’t know what else to do
Going to spend all my time with you
