Longtime sunshine

sometimes i wanna pack it all up, get on a bus and move to vermont
or maine, or any of those states back east that i remember
sometimes i wanna go back to school to an east coast college with some history
i'd be satisfied, i know, in the simple things

longtime sunshine, longtime sunshine upon me

sometimes i wanna build a house with a wood stove or a fireplace
in the middle of the living room an old piano
sometimes it don't seem so bad to settle down with a good woman
leave this lonely life behind forever and ever

longtime sunshine, longtime sunshine upon me
longtime sunshine, longtime sunshine upon me

sometimes i wanna get in a car, close my eyes and drive real fast
keep on going 'til i get some place where i can truly rest

longtime sunshine, longtime sunshine upon me
longtime sunshine, longtime sunshine upon me

I'm counting down until the first day of Spring and sunshine and warmth. It's probably really bad that I'm already over snow and cold. Especially since winter really hasn't even shown its face in Syracuse.

Go buy Rivers Cuomo's Alone.

i love this song. its so simple. and sad. and trying to be optimistic yet desperate. my favorite line is the one with east-coast college.
