One Of My Kind - Conor Oberst lyrics

Phil's Song (Learn To Stop Time)
Conor Oberst Song Lyrics

Artist: Conor Oberst
Album: One Of My Kind (2012)


Well there's a lady I know down in acapulco
Has a house up high on a hill
Don't bother bringing medicine
Her smile is your pill.

There's a beach down the street, just a hundred feet
Going to stick my toes in the sand
There's a couple so old, they're taking a stroll
But they're still holding hands.

If there's a secret they have, well, I'd like to know
They could whisper it right in my ear
They said, 'open your eyes because you're living blind
And know love is greater than fear'.

Because I've been up, and I've been down
No, I've been around and around.

Well, there's a girl I see when I go back out east
She lets me sleep in her bed
In the morning we talk about everything
What she learned from the books she's read.

There's a store on the corner that sells anything
A simple man might need
Cigarettes and coffee
Lotto tickets just to dream.

There's a park on the way where I like to go
Just to sit and watch the folks
Kids playing ball
Their mamas on the phone.

Because I've been here, and I've been there
With you, I feel safe and I feel scared
But if I could learn to stop time
Don't you know I would?
How sweet it would be
Only if I could.

There's a friend I have, she up and packed her bag
And headed way up north
Turned her back on everything she knew
To brainwash some new foolish fool.

If I had to guess, he ain't much different than me
Pretty smart but fairly dumb
Fall in line behind a pretty smile
And a phony selfish charm.

But the past is the past and I don't look back
But sometimes she'll call my phone
Open the wound just to rub some salt
She's a miserable person but it ain't her fault.

Because I've been here and I've been there
But with you, I feel safe and I feel scared
I've been up, and I've been down
No, I've been around and around
But if I could learn to stop time
Don't you know I would?
How sweet it would be
Only if I could.
