The Gaslight Anthem – Selected Poems lyrics

[Verse:]
Honey bee, said I got too much sympathy
But I can call her any time
And if you're lost and you need a little peace from me
Bring all your trouble by
Honey bee, how have I hurt you?
Come on, tell your blues to me
Maybe I should live up there in the curtain
On the wings of Mercury

I was fortunate but desperate
Insomniac but innocent
I was living underneath my body weight
My eyes eyes were slowly green and hazy
Sick from greed and hate and envy
I was crawling up inside my head

[Chorus:]
And all I seem to find is that
Everything is changed
And all this life just feels like a series of dreams
Selected poems and lovers I can't begin to name
And all in all, I find that nothing stays the same

[Verse 2:]
And I was crazy like the moon for you
And head over my heels for you
And never would I change or compromise
But something in my mind does things I can't contain for anything
Last night I don't think sleep even touched my eyes

[Chorus:]
And all I seem to find is that
Everything is changed
And all this life just feels like a series of dreams
Selected poems and lovers I can't begin to name
And all in all, I find that nothing stays the same
