Song: The Forward Thinker Me

FAWM 2018

Album: FAWM 2018
Track: #5

Fifth FAWM song 2018. Pretty typical (read overused) major blues song. I did this one in a hurry, so it'd benefit from a cleaner performance, but there's just not enough time in a day. :)

Lyrics Print

Yeah people always told me
When I was young
I was a smart little cookie
I was destined to become

Anything I wanted
I was gonna practice law
Rolling in the money
And fixing all the world's wrongs

So I skipped all those useless
Steps of growing up
You know, like learning to be human
Or practicing enough

The forward thinker me
Got something on his mind
He's getting sick of me
Trying to live all of the time

Finally made it to adulthood
Any minute it'll click
Probably just gotta smile good
Oh yeah, that'll do the trick

Yeah ten short years from now
I'll be rolling in the dough
All those people gonna ask me how
To do everything you know

They'll want my thoughts on art
And music and philosophy
DAMN that was fifteen years now
I'm not that man that I forgot to be

The forward thinker me
Got something on his mind
He's getting sick of me
Trying to live all of the time

Ok ok all isn't lost
Just keep the grind under my nose
Three hundred years from now I'll be so famous
I'm like a modern day Van Gogh

The forward thinker me
Got something on his mind
He's getting sick of me
Trying to live all of the time

The forward thinker me
Got something on his mind
He's getting sick of me
Trying to live all of the time
