Conor Oberst - Hundreds of Ways

rate me

What a thing to be a witness to the sunshine

What a dream to just be walking on the ground

What a time to live among the ash and remnants of our love

That came before and I’m still looking for that now.

It took centuries to build these twisted cities

It took seconds to reduce them down to dust

And all the tour guide could say was take your pictures folks it’s late

And try your best please to remember what was done.

Pre-chorus:

Don’t look so forlorn, don’t you look so scared!

Don’t get so upset, this world was never fair.

Chorus:

But there are hundreds of ways

To get through the day.

There are hundreds of ways

Now you just find one!

I used to think that time was of the essence

Now I just wish I could get some sleep

All this strange parade of sounds

The city makes when I lie down

Little explosions that set fire to my dreams.

Sometimes I get mistaken for this actor

And I guess that I can see it from the side

Maybe no one really seems to be the person that they mean to be

I hope I am forgotten when I die!

Pre-chorus:

Don’t contradict me, don’t make me cross the line!

If you feel threatened, it’s only because I might.

Chorus:

But there are hundreds of ways

To get through the day.

But there are hundreds of ways

To get through the day!

Yes there are hundreds of ways

So you best find one.

All my heroes they’re all talk

Running in circles, some stop, watch, some chaos

Love was the message, full stop.

We ramble on and on

We ramble on and on, hey!

I stole all the rhinestones out of Carolina

Sold them out in Bakersfield for cash

On the ... got a band sound like an arcade in Japan

Blew all my quarters trying to get that feeling back.

Now any sucker can turn boredom into violence

A sociopath riding on a bus

And his irises are black from his novelty contacts

He looks around but he can’t see the rest of us.

Pre-chorus:

In my sunglasses, don’t mind the blinding light

Yeah it’s getting dark, bro, but I've always loved the night

But there are hundreds of ways

To get through the day.

There are hundreds of ways

To get through the day.

There are hundreds of ways

To get through the day.

There are hundreds of ways

To get through the day.

There are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of ways

To get through the day

Just find one!
