Ahead Of The Curve (Monsters of Folk)

Another perfect day They keep pilin’ up I got happiness that I can maintain So beginner’s luck I had shoes to fill Walkin’ barefoot now Can’t tell north from south But no split hair’s gonna get me down Stayin’ above the flat line I’m ahead of the curve Take a piece of the sunshine with me On a redeye flight to another world It isn’t any trouble If you wanna come with me I know it’s out of the question, honey But I sure could use the company And a place to be Now the sky is pink Rooftop swimmin’ pool I’m not carefree, no I’m free to care I just never do All the bags are checked And the reasons why Yesterday lingers on That’s the piece you keep when you say goodbye You can get what you want now Knock it out of the park Bury it by the river, easy There’s a search party but it’s getting dark I won’t hold you to nothin’ I wanna make that plane Probably end up a stranger and crazy But I’m still hopin’ there’s another way And a place to stay Well, the scene has got you sentimental When the night comes When the night comes loose All the things you put upon the mantle What a shame What a shame It’s old news I’m stayin’ above the flatline I’m ahead of the curve Take a piece of the sunshine with me On an all-night drive to another world You can get what you want now Knock it out of the park Probably end up a drifter and lonely But I’m still hoping for a change of heart And a place A place A place To start
