The Hold Steady – Soft In The Center lyrics
Well, the hospital is gonna let you go.
But the city is gonna stick around.
Yeah sure, the stars are in the sky.
But the money is still down on the ground.
Man, if money didn't matter then I might tell you something new.
You can't tell people what they want to hear
If you also want to tell the truth.

I'm just trying to tell the truth, kid.
I'm just trying to tell the truth.

You can't get every girl.
You'll get the ones you love the best.
You won't get every girl.
You'll love the ones you get the best.

I know bodies of water freeze over.
I'm from a place with lots of lakes.
But sometimes they get soft in the center.
And the center is a dangerous place.
It's been a long cold winter.
Now you're standing on unsafe ice.
You can probably do anything.
If you can just go and get yourself right.

You gotta get yourself right, kid.
I'm gonna give you some advice.

You can't get every girl.
You'll get the ones who love the best.
You won't get every girl.
You'll love the ones you get the best.
Kid, you can't kiss every girl.
You gotta trust me on this one.

I know what you're going through.
I had to go through that too
