Neil Young

Something opened up the gates again

I can control it, so I'm rushing in

Here comes a mermaid and a little girl

Some open drawers from around the world

I got some medals hanging on my chest

I've seen some good ones but I missed the best

Lady Luck, don't you turn on me

I'm just a student of your history

I'm just a student of your history

Slowpoke, I'm going to run with you

Wear all your clothes and do what you do

Slowpoke we've got some things to find

When I was faster I was always behind

When I was faster I was always behind

Something pulling back the curtain again

The stage is darker and the crowd is in

The song is gentle and the song is long

Something's missing, but something is found

Something's missing, but something is found
