about

This girl I was hanging out with in New Brunswick during a tour I was doing told me that "God throws sh*t away." I prefer to think we're all just being recycled.

lyrics

spring time in Harvard Yard in Cambridge again
Queen of the Lost Boys throws down a 10
she'll take one for her and she'll take one for her friend
it's chilly and they’re looking for some comfort

If you go and take a walk on the New Jersey Shore right now
an old man is playing harmonica on some boardwalk bench downtown
he'll drink his red wine, draw your portrait, yeah man, but he won’t ever drown
been a skipper on a sailboat 18 years

I watched the sun splash cross the shores of Lake Champlain
I made love to a goddess in a tent in the rain
an old gypsy she once told me that god likes to throw old things away
I prefer to think we're all just being recycled

40 degrees in New Hampshire tonight
we started drinking cider at 3 to prepare ourselves for the night
and we played a show, and told some stories, made people laugh, things turned out all right
sunrise came while I was still finger-pickin'

I watched the sun splash cross the shores of Lake Champlain
people essentially pay me to bitch and complain
an old gypsy she once told me that god likes to throw old things away
I prefer to think we're all just being recycled, yee-hoo

I'll jump in my car and I'll drive a long way
not sure where I'll end up or what the people there will say
I'll meet a girl, and fall in love, and like smoke I'll blow away
got another place to be
more sights to see
more people to meet
couch and a cuppa tea
calling my name

gonna watch the sun splash cross the shores of every lake
meet a woman, get hitched, divorced, and lose half of everything I make
an old gypsy she once told me that god likes to throw old things away
I prefer to think the human race is recycled, yeah

an old gypsy she once told me that god likes to throw old things away
people say we're doomed
and that might be true
but I prefer to think we're all just being recycled
