'99

I used to stay up all night, I was a little dissolute
Nothing was going right
I didn’t know how to talk to you
Some of us get lost along the way
I want to call you up, I want to call you up
But what is there to say

Sometimes I wish I could wake up
And see you lying there like it was 1999
I know that a lot has changed since then
But you’re still on my mind
You’re still on my mind

I wake up, I roll a joint on a Big Star record
I want to see my old friends
But I just can’t seem to get it together
Some of us get lost along the way
I want to call you up, I want to call you up
But what is there to say

Sometimes I wish I could wake up in the morning
See you lying there like it was 1999
I know that a lot has changed since then
But you’re still on my mind
You’re still on my mind

I don’t know why, I can’t explain
But my heart cries out for you
It’s like trying to get back on a moving train
There’s just nothing I can do about it

Sometimes I wish I could wake up in the morning
See you lying there like it was 1999
I know that a lot has changed since then
But you’re still on my mind
You’re still on my mind
Some of us get lost along the way
I want to call you up, I want to call you up
But what is there to say
What is there to say
