Bicycle Days

from Endless Summers by Peter Arvidson



You could have a happy birthday party if you wanted to bring
A couple of 40's or something you can sing
I can remember a time when I had to find my way
Everything that I've been through brought me to this very day

I can feel the grass on my feet
I can feel the joy underneath
I've just got to look

Oh, the school bell rings, I'm out and I am free now
Riding my bicycle with things towing beneath me
I'm going up hills, I'm going down thrills
I'm feeling all these things, I want to be every day like its my last
Coming up from the class

From the underneath, I pull in the rubble of every little thing
That I want to pull off my gloves, but I don't want to handle things
Because I have a kind of obsession with being cleanly and freaky
Get at me, get at me, forget all these things and come at me
With the truth or they honestly get a little dirty, its ok
I don't want to be

In my mid 30's never thought it would come at me like this
Well everything hurts, and my back just cracks
And everything makes a sound like this *pop*

The every day version or the best of me, what even is that?
I don't know, you tell me, come on
How can we get something done, if we can't even relax?
If we can't even have fun? If we can't even go back?
Time never stops moving no matter what you do
Take it back

I want to be
