I've been holding onto this beat since I was living in China... I finally wrote something to it that I felt worked, and I saw Joe at a friend's wedding, and we talked about working together... so here you go


The visor gives shade as the driveway fades
Reminiscin on the days when I was a little craze
They were stalled, checked out, while I opened new lanes
They were smellin the flowers, I was sellin bouquets
Now I listen: Lupe, playin that new Drake
New Kendrick Lamar, new Jin mixtape
Many Christians, missionaries makin mistakes
left a sour taste in mouth, now I need a new fra-grance
And I need some more patience
I'm waitin on my day, writin songs like Amadeus
sittin itchin to create, sittin, waitin for my fate
already written on my face (already written on my face)
'Cuz they say your future's written by decisions that you make
In your high school age or your college-going days
I'm tired of overanalyzing things I cannot change
So I'm riding down the highway playing songs I didn't, make

Just listen let the world breeze by
Pull your sleeves up, roll down the windows
This is just what I've seen in my life
What you're hearing is what I've experienced

So I breeze past quickly in the left lane
Playin that left brain, bangin in my left brain
When I went back, man, barely recognized it
High school memories have very big surprises
We used to skip class in the hot dog store
Now it's all closed up, we don't hang there no more
Someone scratched up my door, oh well, that's life
Hit the signal to my left but I turned out all right
I used to have a fantasy of driving through the night
I could be in Boston by the break of first daylight
Had an old girlfriend whose mom lived out in the burbs
Dated one long summer fumbling under her shirt
.But the streets that I'm takin never go there
So even in my memories, I rarely ever go there
It's not that I don't care, but life moves on
And memories live on in the past - and in songs
