Shakey Graves - Once In A While Lyrics




So you wake up thirty-five
With a child and a bride
In time, I know, you've seen it all before
But not on you, no, no, no
No, I don't believe it's true

You say, "I've lived enough of famous nights
All by my lone"
And I would like to be the dark
And I would want her, too
Oh, baby, maybe
Once in a while

So don't tell me
I'll tell you
Oh yeah I've been here for a while
Oh the world ain't free
No, the world ain't free
But it always pays to fake a smile
Oh yeah so save your money and wake up broke
Yeah worry late or worry no (no)
Oh oh write it down in a big old book
Throw it under the bed and never look

You say, "I've lived enough of famous nights
All by my lone"
And I would like to be the dark
And I would want her, too
Oh, baby, maybe
Once in a while

'Cause here in the big easy
Yeah, I would like to be only here
Once in a while
From the bottom of the moon
To the bottom of my glass
It's not far
Yeah, don't you see that I
Have nothing better to do
