under a bad star

© 2002 harper blue music

you landed where i should have
you took my place
the decade that i wasted
you never faced
it’s jealousy it’s simple
you have what i want
i feel cheated on a cosmic scale
look at me
you won’t be young forever
better settle while you can
and don’t forget to save
save what you have
thank all your stars and
thank all your friends
but don’t you ever say
that you’d understand
i’m going out and
you’re coming in
i envy your successes
your pretty face
i envy you your gender
your empty space
’cause mine isn’t so simple
it’s not supposed to be
people tell me what i’ve got
inside me
but i’ll be young forever
and i’ll fail when i can
nobody will save
me from my hands
billions of stars and
none are my friends
but don’t you ever say
that you’d understand
i’m going out and
you’re coming in
don’t you ever say
that you’d understand
i’m going out and
you’re coming in


Acoustic versions are now available with and without vocals.
