lyrics

The Romancer (Back to the Beginning)

On the first day of my life
I took one look over my shoulder
The first impressions seemed all right
Two sugars please, don’t forget to write

And to the surprise of ma & pa
I booked a flight across the border
The destination seemed so far
Though it’s so romantic in the brochure

Cos momma I just cant go on, in pleasing someone else’s son
Each day
hey
Now they’re throwing a party for the undecided
I’d like to cancel but I was not invited
Oh turn me over cos Im done with stalling
It’s time I lived up to all my big talking
So I quite my job but I can fall back on it,
There’s just so much that I haven’t done yet.
But Im fine,
it really don't mean nothing
Now I am back, yeah I am back.

Oh the first steps done there’ll be no doubt
They’ll step aside for the new romancer
I don’t pretend I got it all work out
I’d best do it now consequences later

But some folks give me dreams of how I’d like to kick them in the teeth
And is that so strange?
Hey
Now I know what we wont and what’s to be avoided
All you need is the concept leave the rest to the layers
Oh spare me the details, close the shop, put a cork in
It’s time I lived up to all my big taking
So I told the boss he can go and shove it
I’ve got a dirty gob but someone’s got to have it
And now Im fine
It really don't mean nothing
No matter, now I am back
Back to the beginning

Now we’ll do what we want and never fall in line
Let them stick their trouble where the sun don't shine
Cos a man once wrote once its lost you cant go back
But don’t listen to old men do what you wont I wrote that
So I told the boss he’s a surly son of a bitch
It's a dirty gob but someone’s got to have it
And now Im fine
It really don't mean nothing
Yeah it means jack, now I am back
Back to the beginning

about

Wons Phreely Los Angeles, California

“his songs have the potential to fill the vacant indie poet laureate void, rooted as they are in social realism but with a wry wit replete with the kind of joyful melodies that make you think you can take on the whole damn world. There’s a hint of Springsteen meets Jamie T at a Beck gig”. -: TheVPME.com ... more
