The gentleman's in the lane spinning his hat on a cane
Stepping out, out for a change
Good morning all, it's a beautiful day
The general's winning the war that seems suicidal before you came along
Now i'll protect you as long as you'll stay
La morning had to come, i'd be walking in the sun
Living in the day
But last night i was about to throw it all away
If patience started a band i'd be her biggest fan
Look at me, i'm talking to you
I don't want the lead in your play
The star's just a part of the scene, the gentleman in green
Paying off out on the street
I can't go home, it's not on my way
La things i've never done, cars parked in the sun
Living in the day
But last night i was about to throw it all away
Last night i was about to throw it all away
Last night i was about to throw it all away
Last night i was about to throw it all away
