Lunchtime cover of original written and performed by Hüsker Dü from their 1987 album Warehouse: Songs and Stories.


Well, you get up every morning
 and you see it's still the same

All the floors and all the walls
 and all the rest remains

Nothing changes fast enough
, the hurry, worry days

It makes you want to give it up
 and drift into a haze

Revelation seems to be another way
 to make the days go faster anyways

We're all exchanging pleasantries
 no matter how we feel

And no one knows the difference
 'cause it all seems so unreal

You'd better grab a hold of something
, simple but it's true

If you don't stop to smell the roses now
 they might end up on you

Expectations only mean you really think you know
 what's coming next, and you don't

Yearbooks with their autographs
 from friends you might have had

These are your important years
 you'd better make them last

Falling in and out of love just like...

These are your important years, your life

Once you've seen the light, you finally
 realise it might end up all right might end up all right now
