play easy money

from The Set That Wasn't

she could have been an actress she could have finished school
she could have got her driver's license too
she could have lived in london tokyo or rome
summer times in paris winters somewhere far from home

easy money reaches for your hand
tell your mother that you're happy
tell your lover he's your friend
feels so easy you are floating on the breeze
you are floating through time
what else is there but time

cigarettes and cafes and model magazines
and filling up the spaces in between
faxes from your father a message from your mom
nothing's really missing you can put your finger on

easy money reaches for your hand
tell your mother that you're happy
tell your lover he's your friend
feels so easy you are floating on the breeze
you are floating through time
what else is there but time

so mingle through the party and take a sip of wine
the sunset on the ocean is beautiful tonight
here's to being beautiful
here's to being young
here's to a lifetime of fun
