Round the Room

from Mayday by Akrasia

lyrics

Looking back on when I was caught and confused
Feeling lonely and so unclear
No more am I used to having so much time
Without hearing sweet nothings in my ear
Sacrifices made just to look a certain way
All those trivial things we've heard
Trying to convince ourselves we're finally getting
All the good things in life we deserve

I gotta change who I was in the past
Decisions made assuming that it's all gonna last

It used to be my life
Now it's just stuff laying round the room

It used to be my life
Now it's just stuff laying round the room

Five guitars, four microphones
Six milk crates full of Rolling Stone's
Baseball cards, baseball gloves
Birthday cards signed with love
Hard drives, bowling balls
Things that used to hang on walls
Concert shirts, dried flowers
Enough CDs to tile a shower
Stuff that's neat, stuff I made
Enough hats for a hat parade
Scraps of things I thought I might
Make into art, someday I might
Time capsules layered, heavy
Going back almost to the 70s
Boxes, tubs, and vats and bins and
I don't even know whats in em

Got no idea what I'm gonna do
You can keep it, but you can't take it with you

It used to be my life
Now it's stuff laying round the room

It used to be my life
Now it's stuff laying round the room

I gotta change who I was in the past
Decisions made assuming that it's all gonna last

It used to be my life
Now it's just stuff laying round the room

It used to be my life
Now it's stuff laying round the room
