Pretty Angry

Music/Lyrics: John Popper

 

 

I wish I drank tequila

I wish I stayed up late

But lately when the Sandman comes

You know I just can wait

No, lately I can wait

 

And we packed up all your boxes

It's all been hauled away

I never stare at walls so bare

'Cause something always stays

Yeah something of you stays

 

And I wanna shout from my guitar

Come out, come out wherever you are

The joke is over, open your eyes

A heart like yours, it never dies

And I found your keys behind your chair

I still can see you sitting there

This isn't funny; don't fool around

You let me go... you let me down

 

And I guess I'm still pretty angry

And I don't want to be

I don't know which was the bigger waste of time

Missing you or wishing, instead, it was me

 

I wish I walked on water

Pulling rabbits from my sleeve

Guessing cards and saving everyone

I wish I still believed

Oh I wish that I believed

 

That I could also channel voices

That I've endured the burning blade

That I could make some of your choices

I wish I weren't afraid

Of those choices that you've made

 

Like I could give you what you need

So ollie ollie oxen free

The game is up and I give in

So show yourself so that you can win

Come claim your prize and I don't care

I still can see you standing there

How could you leave, how could you lie?

You cut me off in mid-reply

Run all your races

And be what you're gonna be

And let some of us love you

And set thy anger free

 

 

And I guess I'm still pretty angry

And I don't want to be

I don't know which was the bigger waste of time

Missing you or wishing instead it was me

 

The will to win, the urge to race

I still can see it on your face

Thought I'd keep up but only crashed

I wasn't built to move that fast

Thought I could match you stride for stride

But I was on the other side

And holding onto the safety rail

With knuckles white, complexion pale

A cloud of dust and you were gone

Thought I would catch you later on

I limped behind, your race was won

But were you racing or on the run?

How you enjoyed, you loved to drive

And I'm destroyed... 'cause I'm alive

Run all your races

And be what you're gonna be

And let some of us love you

And set thy anger free

 

Control my contradictions

And allow that my labors thrive

And grant me please the answer

I don't know why I'm still...

 

In the beginning there was you and me

I would have brushed my world aside

Rather than say goodbye

I would have brushed my world aside

I don't know why I'm still...

 

 

And I guess I'm still pretty angry

And I don't want to be

I don't know which was the bigger waste of time

Missing you or wishing, instead, it was me

 

And I guess I'm still pretty angry

And I don't want to be

I don't know which was the bigger waste of time

Missing you...
