Backseat Goodbye – Calico Kitten lyrics

If my life had a soundtrack it would be acoustic.
With songs about the way,
I laugh at my ability to love things that I can't have.
If my life were a movie,
It would be black and white with still-frames in color and hue.
The credits would say a simple phrase,
Like "You aren't what you say or what you do,
So don't worry so much, just get on with a life that you love".
I had a good day,
Since I didn't die or have to wait,
In any really long lines at the store.
Me, I like to make music.
You just like to make war.
There's a calico kitten prancing across a rooftop,
Smiling at the grey withered sky.
He's watching all the cars as they pass by,
Their blinkers go click click click.
This new height makes him homesick,
He misses his mother the most.
And his long days by the window,
They're long long gone.
If you're alright, then I'm alright.
If you're alright, then I'm alright.
It feels good to be alive again,
So good to see the sky again.
