I'm counting it to the day
I'm thinking if I did everything I said
Or if the year got the best of me 
One thing about time, it waits for nobody
You told me, isn't that what they say 
Been batting 'gainst it and getting nowhere
Just racin' got nothing to say to nobody
Little lady you Better get in line
Now I'm talking this to myself 
Better get in on down with the program
Don't sell your lot for an old broke dream they been sellin' ya 
Free fallin like Tom Petty, waitin' on this rodeo to haul 
I break my own rules, steal my way home
And guard the still there like a beast

We race the globe 
The shakers and the fools 
We trouble you know 
You'll find us where we fall
We chasing shadows 
We race the globe (and I can't have it, have it any other way)
The shakers and the fools (and I can't have it, have it any other way)
We trouble you know (I'm not gon' have it, have it any other way)
You'll find us where we fall (And I can't have it, have it any other way)
We chasing shadows

Always knew I'd be international, no fear of flying 
Limousines, big people, their parties But I'm on an island 
Watching through a window the flashing light on the bed 
Neon sign goes red
"You Are Here" it says, well
At least someone knows where I am 

Maybe I will get it wrong, no patience for myself 
Selling years of ideas 'til I'm old, a living on the shelf 
I won't follow I'm taking the long way, my standards hold me up 
Why they eating they idols up? 
Now why they eating they idols up? Damnit 
I give 'em my heart in words will they remember me 
I'll leave 'em alone and time'll want to smother what I say 
I round another year and wonder did I go some place 
I'm bucking this one down, this one right here won't walk away 

We race the globe 
The shakers and the fools 
We trouble you know 
You'll find us were we fall
We chasing shadows 
We race the globe (and I can't have it, have it any other way)
The shakers and the fools (and I can't have it, have it any other way)
We trouble you know (I'm not gon' have it, have it any other way)
You'll find us where we fall (And I can't have it, have it any other way)
We chasing shadows

Always knew I'd be international no fear of flying 
Limousines, big people, their parties But I'm on an island 
Watching through a window the flashing light on the bed 
Neon sign goes red "You Are Here" it says, well
At least someone knows where I am
"You Are Here" it says, well
At least someone knows where I am
