Joel Plaskett - Absentminded Melody lyrics

It's dusk as all the shadows fall, the sun is laid to rest
At night the city comes to life as the light dies in the west
Here we stand as some local band, sets circles 'round the clock
Smoke so thick you need a lighthouse, so loud I can't hear myself talk

Someone whispered in my ear, "It's not like it was before"
I don't know what happened here, I guess we just got bored
The good old days, well I suppose, I'm glad they're behind us now
The only thing worse than growing up is never quite learnin' how
Late at night we toss and we turn, lay awake 'til dawn
We close our eyes as the sun comes up we're gone
