Go with the Flow

Chords

 

In a room, in a room, it didn't look like this
it had much more lower ceilings and it was delicately lit
I couldn't shake an old girlfriend on my mind
‘cause I was dancing to our old song with a new one


And there's no room, no room for her inside my head
we haven't spoke for 8 years I still feel her fingerprints
cause she: laid back, and I: a little wound…
she'd spout her little maxims that she had to calm me down, she'd say:


Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path
you hope for the best, you take what you have
and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)


and I heard, I heard, I heard she's married now
there's no word for the emotion that I felt when I found out
it was fiery, but casual like words put in my mouth
an indifference to some news that would have killed my former self
but no, not now, and I hate how that makes me feel
it undercuts the present like my passions aren't as real
‘cause time will revise both the perfect and the broken
so I have to write a song to keep a snapshot of the moment


Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path
you hope for the best, you take what you have
and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)
Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path
you hope for the best, you take what you have
and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)


And I chose, I chose self-medicating woes
not separating causes from the subsequent results
and I know, I know there's better antidotes
than choking on the fits and tantrums I would always throw
and I hope, I hope that I will always grow
but I'm'a cut the tongue out of the next one who says "Go with the Flow"


Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path
you hope for the best, you take what you have
and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)
Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path
you hope for the best, you take what you have
and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)


In a room, in a room it looked a lot like this
I told a bunch of strangers stuff I really shouldn't admit…
