He traded his smile for a paycheck
It wasn't enough so he had to start walking
Got on a bus, said "To Boston"
Fell asleep
Woke up in Wisconsin

Hey
It could be enough
Nothing works out
The way your mama promised

Hey
Don't you have enough?
Nothing works out
The way your daddy said

He traded the paycheck for a sketchbook
Sat on the street drawing twenty-dollar portraits
She smiled first, said "My place"
Followed her home
Woke up by a street lamp

Hey
It could be enough
Nothing works out
The way your mama promised

Hey
Don't you have enough?
Nothing works out
The way your daddy said

Nothing to trade but the sketchbook
Still on the street drawing twenty-dollar portraits
Another great smile saying "My place"
Walked away
Still awake in Wisconsin
I don't know if I'm getting any better at writing lyrics, but I like this. And yes, there are probably far better titles for it than Wisconsin, but I don't care~

What's wrong with waking up in Wisconsin?

So I suppose I shouldn't say anything about Estoy Perdida, huh? Well, everybody knows I'm not very good at following wise judgement. At least, they found out in some unpleasant way...
And I can easily tell you wouldn't talk to me about this kind of thing, but maybe Maya? I can't know what you need to do, but I know some of what you shouldn't do. Do yourself a favor and don't just sit on it.

Oh, and if I'm making a complete (asstart, fucktard, shithead, dumbass -- whichever applies best), please feel free to lemme know :wink:

I'd volunteer, but I can't do sharps or flats, even though I sing them...even when they're not supposed to be sharp or flat...
