The Auteurs - American Guitars lyrics

They were failing dutifully
If you're going to fail at all
Failing came more easily
Than it did to us all
And I wanted to be there
See them again
It was easy to see they were
The best band to be in
I gave up drugging
When you spiked my drink
Stopped freeloading
When I could not get in
I gave up singing
When I was told
I could not dance
Knew my place in the world
When I heard them start
Woke up Sunday morning
With a hole
the size of my pool
Couldn't believe
I'd grown so ugly
Couldn't believe
I'd been so cruel
I should've set back
Thought about their past
East coast to west coast
How they'd struggled
for their art
Some people
were born to write
Some people
were born to dance
Thought I knew
my place in the world
Thought I knew my art
Glad to be there, see them begin
It was easy to see
They were the best band to be in
American Guitars...
