Wishing For Contentment by Andrew Bird’s Bowl of Fire

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on August 23, 2010

Well, you know sometimes
I find myself

Wishing for contentment
Hoping for relentment
Venting my resentment
On the happy few, on the happy few, yeah

Awaiting resolution
And dreams of restitution
But finding retribution
Is just another thing to do

‘Cause you’ve got to keep yourself busy
Visit aunt Lizzy
Just see how she’s been

But when you’re making a late run
Two judgmental matrons retort
See what I mean?

A seeming reprobation
Perhaps, it’s my vocation
Oh, nauseous elation
Comes to mind but fades so soon, ah

Wishing for contentment
Hoping for relentment
Venting my resentment
On the happy few

Yes, I’m awaiting resolution
And dreams of restitution, restitution
Finding retribution
Is just another thing

You’ve got to keep yourself busy
Visit aunt Lizzy
Just see how she’s been

But when you’re making a late run
Two judgmental matrons retort
See what I mean?

A seeming reprobation
Perhaps, it’s my vocation
Oh, nauseous elation
Comes to mind but fades so soon

It fades so soon
It fades so soon
