lyrics

I took advice that I never knew, would cost me years I’ve been given
I wasn’t of age where you understand that having plans isn’t living
Fortunately I found other retreats
The kinds where it’s hard to survive
I’m starting at one in this place but I’m barely alive

I’m still as lonesome as I was then, but now there’s 10 times the people
It makes it feel better to hear the street, feel the heat from the city
I can’t pretend that I’m over it yet
And there’s plenty more left to subside
I’m starting at one in this place and I’m barely alive

Lower your guns
We’re not fighting yet
But at least we’ve resolved to pick a side

I used to shuffle and drag my feet, with no relief at the finish
Cause everyone knows that it’s better when, you feel content when you’re in it
But now things have changed I’ve got no town to blame
So it’s never or now to arrive
I’m starting at one in this place and I’m barely alive

about

Josh Kaufman Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

"Sweet-sounding... with hints of alt-country, The Beatles and Elliott Smith. Kaufman is a thoughtful songwriter, and his moves are intentional; he has the pop form down without following it to a formulaic end" - Pittsburgh City Paper
