The Wonder Years - I Just Want to Sell Out My Funeral

I was just happy to be a contender. I was just aching for anything. And I used to have such steady hands but now I can’t keep ‘em from shaking.

Oh I’m sorry I… I’m sorry I don’t laugh at the right times. Is this what it feels like with my wings clipped? I’m awkward and nervous…

But I was kind of hoping you’d stay. I was kind of hoping you’d stay. I need you to stay. Oh, God, could you stay? I need you to stay.

If I’m in an airport and you’re in a hospital bed, well then, what kind of man does that make me?

I know how it feels to be at war with a world that never loved me. When all we had were hand me-downs. All we had was good will.

Two blackbirds on a highway sign are laughing at me here with my wings clipped. I’m staring up at the sky but the bombs keep fucking falling.

There’s no devil on my shoulder; He’s got a rocking chair on my front porch. But I won’t let him in. No, I won’t let him in.

'Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts and I know how it's all gonna end. There's no triumph waiting…there's no sunset to ride off in. We all want to be great men and there's nothing romantic about it. I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given…
