Maybe it would be fun to get a new opinion
Get a little work done and forget
Maybe it would be cool if I rocked it old school
Try to break a gold rule and a sweat

Better than the first time, better than the worst time
If I could just reverse time, I'd be set

Testing 1,2,3 can anybody hear me?
If I shed the irony would anybody cheer me
If I acted less like me would I be in the clear?

She got a new apartment it's out on the escarpment
And in her glove compartment are my songs
She hasn't even heard them since she found out what the words meant
She decided she preferred them all wrong
Kind of like the last time with a bunch of really fast times
If we're living in the past time soon gone

Testing 1,2,3 can anybody hear me?
If I shed the irony would anybody cheer me?
If I acted less like me would I be in the clear?

We recognize the present is half as pleasant
As our nostalgia for the past'll be presented
Recast and reinvented until it's how we meant it

Testing 1,2,3 can anybody hear me?
If I shed the irony would anybody cheer me?
If I acted less like me would I be in the clear?

He's everything that you need
You wiped out on your ten speed
And either he will succeed or just suck

Testing 1,2,3 can anybody hear me?
If I shed the irony would anybody cheer me?
If I acted less like me would I be in the clear?

Begin the testing 1,2,3 can anybody hear me?
If I shed the irony would anybody cheer me?
If I acted less like me would I be in the clear, G?

Testing 1,2,3
Testing 1,2,3
