I got arrested in the dark of the night
The cop got restless as he read me my rights
He told me, "I'm always envious of those that I jail,
When I got locked up nobody came to help me post- bail
- CHORUS-
And I said, "Oh!'
And I said , "Oh!"

Went to a party on the side of a hill
Met three Latinas who had gotten their fill
They told me, "Nobody ever gets us down on our knees
Simply to help us take a load off our feet"

-CHORUS-

And I'm never sure what I'm livin' for
But it's always on my mind
Someone comes along, always proves me wrong
Think I'm gonna be fine...

I picked a pocket just to get it all back
Took out the license, left the money in tact
The man said, "I wanna thank you" and I had to ask why
That was the old me I was livin' a lie

-CHORUS-

Ridin' the subway with the scent of her hair
She took out a toothbrush started usin' it there
She explained, "I'm always sure today's the day I will die
I wanna look good if I get to look God in the eye"

-CHORUS-

And I'm never sure what I'm livin' for
But it's always on my mind
Someone comes along, always proves me wrong
Think I'm gonna be fine...

We get lost in the back of our minds
Got nothin' to burn but time, time, time
Everybody's got the Lord, but they keep it inside (x2)

Met an acquaintance we were re-introduced
With more in common than we had in our youth
She told me, "You look the same" I said, "I'm now a new man"
She asked me, "How does that work?"
I started givin' a damn

-CHORUS- (x4)
