  • listen to a song
    with nothing else to do
    or think about
    listen to the different sounds
    in each ear
    single one out
    like the bass guitar
    and follow it
    imagine Paul
    in Abbey Road
    figuring that out
    with a joint stuck on his lip
    a half glass of beer going flat
    at his bare feet
    let your memories go wild
    remember when you listened
    to this song when you were
    driving through Nebraska
    watching the sun beat you to the horizon?
    imagine yourself singing this song
    on stage
    in front of all your friends
    and thousands of strangers
    your ex is thinking
    she made a huge mistake
    you really should listen to a song
    with nothing else to do
    or think about
