Everybody Comes Of Age

from FRESHLYSQUEEZED by Stephen Bard

lyrics

The joker he got nothing left to say
At least nothing that won’t piss you off
I’m thinking that it’s better off that way
Come morning you won’t have to kiss him off
Don’t you get all misty on me babe
Don’t let ‘em ever see you going soft
There’s far bloodier battles left to wage
It’s ok, it’s ok
Eventually everybody comes of age

The candidates all come with their proposals
In a line like sardines around the block
Disciples have walked miles in their sandals
Hoping today’s the day that you might talk
Seems that every word’s become a pearl
In every far flung corner of the clock
You never asked to be some kind of sage
It’s ok, it’s ok
Eventually everybody comes of age

I’m writing this tell you where to go
Although you know I don’t mean no offense
At 30,000 feet time passes slowly
It’s all turtles, turpentine and turbulence
There he goes again you must be thinking
Rambling on not making any sense
Hey you got to find a way to fill the page
It’s ok, it’s ok
Eventually everybody comes of age

There’s a sound inside your head so elusive
You barely know it’s there it’s been so quiet
A different kind of feeling that the blues give
You catch it, there’s a million gonna try it
A concord full of fuel out on the runway babe
All you’ve got to do is choose to fly it
And call out all them numbers on the gauge
It’s ok, it’s ok
Eventually everybody comes of age

Yeah the play has been eight years in pre-production
The orchestra just nailed the overture
You know you’ll never find better percussion
Or an ingénue more gorgeous or demure
She’s nervous, she’s excited for the opening
And all the people coming who once knew her
She might even just fall off the stage
It’s ok, it’s ok, it’s ok
Eventually everybody comes of age
Eventually everybody comes of age
