Futures Lyrics

by Jimmy Eat World

I always believed in futures
I hope for better in November
I try the same losing lucky numbers
It could be a cold night, for a lifetime
Hey now, you can't keep saying endlessly
My darling, how long until this affects me?

Say hello to good times
Trade up for the fast ride
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime
Take the streets completely

I always could count on futures
That things will look up and they look up
Why is it so hard to find a balance
Between living decent and the cold and real
Hey now, what is it you think you see?
My darling, now's the time to disagree

Say hello to good times
Trade up for the fast ride
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime
Take the streets completely

Hey now, the past is told by those who win, my darling
What matters is what hasn't been
Hey now, we're wide awake and we're thinking
My darling, believe your voice can mean something

Say hello to good times
Trade up for the fast ride
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime
Take the streets completely

We close our eyes and the nickel and dime
Take the streets completely
