lyrics

doubled up my money on a sunny hot day
tripled up my honey with a birthday cake
came out on a highway reading NYC
hoping that my baby won't miss me

cradled in my pocket was a rocking chair
pencil with a mirror and a bass guitar snare
wishing for adventure that will keep me there
hoping that the city will be fair

and i've been wrong before
but i'm walking through the door

time is fine when time begins
when you're driving on a freeway motoring
fate is faith and i was raised
after being called all in checkmate

litigating terms at a corporate job
waking up at 7 just to make it on top
riding on the subway thought about my home
hoping that i'll never have to be grown

ordinarily i'm on top of my game
found kentucky bourbon and a little cocaine
messing with a girl she was out from spain
hoping that she loves me the same

and i've been wrong before
but i'm walking through the door

time is fine when time begins
when you're driving on a freeway motoring
fate is faith and i was raised
after being called all in checkmate

living on the street
no shoes on my feet
i should've learned to read
but now i pay the fee


time is fine when time begins
when you're driving on a freeway motoring
fate is faith and i was raised
after being called all in checkmate

doubled up my money on a sunny hot day
tripled up my honey with a birthday cake
came out on a highway reading NYC
hoping that my baby won't miss me
