Dollars for Dimes

from by Jeff Campbell

lyrics

And I know, I know...
A little bit of something bout getting old. 
The taste smell and touch of it all should mean more 
But I can't sit for too long. I get bored 

And you know, you know...
That I can be a little bit of a handful 
The days my heads always down & my eyes full 
You know to stay down the hall in your room 

The punches come from all sides 
So baby, open your eyes 
Makes you feel all cheated, like you're trading dollars for dimes

And I go, I go...
I go around trying to fill the holes in my soul. 
Telling everyone that can hear what I know. 
Maybe I should be buying what I've sold 

The punches come from all sides 
So baby, open your eyes 
Makes you feel all cheated like you're trading dollars for dimes
Such is life.. Don't let it cut you down to size. 
It's all relative-like. So lay you down and get thru to morning time.
