about

What a guy!

lyrics

And now, come and speak with the acrobats
And watch their faces turn from smile to frown
For I have seen them shade their eyes
And furrow their brows under thick disguise

For it’s only by jumping around they survive
God only knows what gives them their drive
They’ve all too often lost sight of their dreams
And followed the prince of the major leagues

So there, leave them sad on the side of the road
And watch their expressions fade as you drive away

Measure their jaws as they scream for you
“I could let go if I wanted to”

I promise that one day your hearts will collide
It’s not just for ornery fate to decide
I’ll get burnt by the torch that’s passed down to me
With love, from the prince of the major leagues
