Lyrics


Funny About That

Too much sex in hotel rooms
Hilton, Regent, Travel Lodge
you know I’m doomed
with strangers
strange as me
shooting dope, no hope
You know what I mean?

Funny bout that
history ain’t destiny
well I know
that I can’t change the way things were
but I can change direction
sure I’m sure

I put up walls nobody could get through
sold every dream I had, I said it was for you
I thought it was a nightmare
but it was just my life
the more I tried
the less things seemed to work out right

Funny bout that
history ain’t destiny
well I know
that I can’t change the way things were
but I can change direction
sure I’m sure

Well I made myself make these promises to me
1. I won’t go banging on no more locked doors
2. I won’t go climbing over prison walls
3. I won’t go crying ‘let me in. let me in’ if love wants me,
she can find me, she knows where I’ve been

Funny bout that
history ain’t destiny
well I know
that I can’t change the way things were
but I can change direction
I can change direction
I can change yeh
I can change yeh
Funny bout that.
