(Olson/Louris)
The ones you left behind
Are stuck in line
You've never been deprived
Of a smile or a time
Didn't you feel so wise for a while
Didn't you feel that your ship had arrived
There was nothing left to borrow
There was nothing left to borrow
Well you follow where you've led
Say you're using your head
Still making the rounds
With the fools and the clowns
Didn't you feel so wise for a while
Didn't you feel that your ship had arrived
There was nothing left to borrow
There was nothing left to borrow
But you'are still young
With your eyes open wide
Couldn't you stick around for the ride
But your mama always said
You gotta save your money
Didn't you feel so wise for a while
Didn't you feel that your ship had arrived
There was nothing left to borrow
There was nothing left to borrow
There was nothing left to borrow
But you're still young
With your eyes open wide
Couldn't you stick around for the ride
Couldn't you stick around
Couldn't you stick around
