We get hung over but we always survive it

We run on endless time to reach a higher cloud

F Eb Bb

But never ever seem to get near it

F Eb Bb F

We sing the.. same old song

Same old song

 

We sing the same old song, just like a vintage car

You can look, but you won't ever drive it

We drink the same old wine from a brand new jar

We get hung over but we always survive it

We sing the... same old song
