Me Like Bees – There Will Be Time Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Hey man, take it easy on that cigarette
It’s not a race, ‘least not one you’ll win
What is that your chipping at in your head
You say I’d know if I’d stick around

I think that’s a burn but we seldom learn
You know fire’s too strict a teacher
Stoking up the coal with another pull
Silence and smoke poured out

[Chorus]
But there’ll be time in distant days
Time enough for me to shape my ways
Where my ambitions lift my indifference
And no more of the day is a waste

[Verse 2]
Get me on the next one I want out
On a bus or train just something
If you traced these city limits from the map
I swear you’d draw a mouth

I promised the neighbor lady I’d look after her cats
Over the summer (summer)
Kind of made fume that she’d duly assume
That I’d just be around

[Chorus]
Before the Earth swallows us up
Before the dirt begins to fill my cup
And the stuff inside of me is made a feast
For the earthworms and digging grubs

[Post-Chorus]
But the thing that I wanted and came here to say
Was “all of it goes a different way”
And you think that you’ll go but you end up
Sticking around

But I think what I heard Bill Murray say
Was “all of it goes a different way”
And don’t think that you’ll go just to end up
Sticking around

[Chorus]
But there’ll be time in distant days
Time enough for me to shape my ways
Where my ambitions lift my indifference
And no more of the day is a waste

Hope to know all I’ve spent
Time and love and money for the rent
I hope to know what was and wasn’t meant
To be sought out on the firmament

[Post-Chorus]
But the thing that I wanted and came back to say
Was “all of it goes a different way”
You think that you’ll go and you end up
Sticking around

But I think what I heard Bill Murray say
Was “all of it goes a different way”
Don’t think that you’ll go just to end up
Sticking around

Matt Nathanson – Bill Murray

[Verse 1]
I fell asleep
Had a dream Bill Murray and I were friends
We drove the world, from Boston to Japan
Blasting old Van Halen and one night over drinks, Bill started crying
He said to me, "Kid,"
"Of all the stupid things I ever did"
"You know, I let go when I should’ve pulled her in"
And he handed me his cell phone
But when I called, you were on a plane
Moving back to Portland for the rain

[Chorus]
I won’t only love you when you’re winning
Other fools pretend to understand
Come on, take my hand and we’ll go down swinging
Let me be your man
Let me be your man

[Verse 2]
A hundred days we hiked the coast of Galway in the rain
And Bill said something late one night in Spain
And it’s always just stuck with me
"You only get one person knows you best"
"And it’s temporary, everybody else"

[Chorus]
I won’t only love you when you’re winning
Other fools pretend to understand
Come on, take my hand and we’ll go down swinging
Let me be your man
Let me be your man

[Bridge]
I’m done with sleep
Imagined things
Cause dreams aren’t dreams
Til you wake up, so wake up
Just wake up here with me

[Chorus]
I won’t only love you when you’re winning
Other fools pretend to understand
Come on, take my hand and we’ll go down swinging
Let me be your man
Let me be your man
