AS TIME GOES 


We Were Half Dressed 

Cared Less 

Wouldnt End Well, But | Digress 
Bare-Feet, Concrete 

Trippin Te The “Obvious Child Beat 


As Time Goes. 
This Time Wil Leave And Be Forgotten 


Yeah, We Were Unwound 

Sun Down 

Trying To Make Sense Of What We Found 
Out in The Heat 

Losing My Blood in The Wild Creek 


As Time Goes, 
This Time Will Leave And Be Forgotten 


Sometimes, | Wish it Never Changed 
But im Fine 
No One Can Stay The Same 


Shirts Wet, From Sweat 

Werent Recognized By The Govern- 
ment Yet 

Wide-Eyed, East Side 

Wasnt Anything That We Wouldnt try 


AS Time Goes, 
This Time Will Leave And Be Forgotten 


Gold Plates, Sewer Grates 

Didn't Know A Thing About Real Estate 
Young Bride, French Wine 

Bringing Souvenirs fo Fill Her Mind 


As Time Goes, 
This Time Will Leave And Be Forgotten 


Sometimes, | Wish it Never Changed 
But fm Fine 

No One Can Stay The Same 

Stay The Same 

Sometimes, | Wish It Never Changed 
But | m Fine 

No One Can Stay The Same

CAROLINE 


Been In The Hospital For Days 

All Of The Guys On My Floor 
Think Were Boys Now 

But They Dont Catch Me Counting 
Like This: 

One Down, 2 Left 

And How Can} Tell if it’s Drugs 
Or My Feelings? 


What if | Dont See The Point 

In Evervbody Wasting So Much Time 
And Energy Worrving About My Thing 
Its My Thing 


Oh Now Caroline 

No Ones Gonna Live My Life For Me 
Hold On, Hold On 

No One's Gonna Live My Life For Me 
Oh Now Caroline | Don't Wanna Be You 


Its In Our Nature To Engage 

With The Voice From Within 
Pushing Us Into Action 

But | Cant Tell lf Your Voice Crept 
inside Me 

So Lemme Make Sure 

That 1M Making My Own Mind Up 


What If | Dont See The Point 

in Everybody Wasting So Much Time 
And Energy Worrying About My Thing

Oh Now Caroline 

No One's Gonna Live My Life For Me 
Hold On, Hold On 

No One's Gonna Live My Life For Me 
Oh Now Caroline | Dont Wanna Be You
