lyrics

I used to take time for granted
used to think life would turn out the way I planned it.
but now I'm settling in and not doing anything I want.
and I can't -- how I can't stand it.

what a terrible thing to have had a dream.

when am I going to find the time
to put the dishes away?
when am I going to find the time
to fold my laundry?

I used to take time for granted
used to think life would turn out the way I planned it.
but now I'm settling in and not doing anything I want.
and I can't -- how I can't stand it.

what a terrible thing to have had a dream.

when am I going to find the time?

about

Ben Hughes New Jersey

"...channels musicians like Elliott Smith, Bright Eyes, and Sufjan Stevens, as on Hughes’ previous releases. But this record immediately calls to mind Pedro the Lion’s Control, with its deep-voiced chords and melodies, lyrical themes of corporate hell, and Hughes’ slurring voice. It could stand as a complimentary album to Control just as well as it stands on its own."
