Yelling At The Sun

Art By Dave Eggers

My Friends Give Up

Yelling at the Sun

Wives have always loved their husbands
Husbands always lay down their lives
For them

Skies are always blue in daytime
Moonlight always bumps the thoughts around
Pinballs

My friends give up
And I give up
And you give up once more
In fourteen years
I've given up but four

Pain always gets through the wooden
Guts that have become so very lame
Always

Green eyes brings me back to who I am
The bad and good and brains gone numb
Always

My friends give up
And I give up
And you give up once more
In fourteen years
I've given up
But for the words and songs like trees
Planted in the ground
I can't remember where
I can't remember where
I can't remember where

For the words and songs like trees
Planted in the ground
I can't remember where
I can't remember where
I can't remember where
