Lyrics
Don't believe another song could ever change the world
Don't believe that little boys grow up to be little girls
Don't believe that wishing ever really made it so
Don't believe you love me, you don't tell me anymore
Don't believe that suicide could ever open up any door
Can't count on my lucky star, if I don't know where it's at
Can't count on my fingers, I've got more sense than than
Can't count on my money, it all goes to pay the rent
Can't count on philosophers if I don't know what they meant
There's a time for counting one by one
And time for counting what's been spent

Some people live their lives
Like they're on number 9
But I'm gonna be around
For a long, long time

I see a stately temple standing in a trance
I see the saints of God breaking into dance
I see a band of angels running up and down the stairs
I see a thousand sparrows floating in the air
I see a love-sick Savior, and I can see the scars that He wears

Some people live their lives
Like they're on number 9
But I'm gonna be around
For a long, long time

I don't wanna live my life
In an endless nursery rhyme
For I'm gonna be around
For a long, long time
M.U.
