Why I Kept Moving

lyrics

When I saw the way that everything worked out,
I knew I was dealing with a professional.
And after the day I had had up to then,
I wanted him to know I was grateful.

So I pulled up a chair and I ordered a drink,
and I asked him what he was having.
But I could tell by the tilt of his mouth and the glass
it wasn't much use settling in.

But at least I tried.
At least I tried,
which is more than you ever do.

That place off of Lawrence, where it all started,
I passed by it the other night.
And it was all boarded up with the roof coming down,
like it's given up trying to fight.

So I brought in a hammer and some two-penny nails,
and I set to work propping it up.
But it wasn't too long before the whole thing fell in.
I knew I was wasting my time.

But at least I tried.
At least I tried,
which is more than you ever do.

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
