The Ins & Outs - Lyrics

THE INS & OUTS
(Joe Slyzelia)

featured on the album Your Lively Love - Deluxe

My hometown sat a hundred miles from anything at all
Just to fit in you had to keep your dreams and hope for something very small
So I grew up fast and just got past that last year of high school
Worked all summer at Rosie’s Diner trying to figure out what to do

So I traded my last paycheck for a ride on Greyhound headed west
Had no place in mind but I had time to figure out the rest

‘Cause I believe that where you begin and where you end
They’re nowhere near the paradise you find in the journey
There’s a whole wide world out there I still don’t know
But I’m learning THE IN’S & OUTS as I go

I met a girl in the Golden State who was hard to overlook
When she took me down by the bay I knew this wouldn’t be by the books
So we played guitar on the beach all night singing every song we had
But when I woke up she was long gone, left just a heart traced in the sand

Now I’m nobody’s fool but she gave plenty to keep me guessing
School’s out but I might just need her to give me another lesson

‘Cause I believe that where you begin and where you end
They’re nowhere near the paradise you find in the journey
There’s a whole wide world out there I still don’t know
But I’m learning THE IN’S & OUTS as I go

Back to the drawing board
And come away with a little more than I had before

Where you begin and where you end
They’re nowhere near the paradise you find in the journey
There’s a whole wide world out there we still don’t know
so I’m learning THE IN’S & OUTS as I go
