Lyrics

This is how it always starts
a couple of minor chords
throw in a B7, to feel like home
another melancholy Monday
called in sick to work again
to stay in, and feel blue 

Living in a Sunshine State
wasting all my days
working a steady job
I moved out here when I turned 21
to lay around in the sun
now I'm wondering what went wrong 

They tell me why don't you write us a happy song
something we can dance and sing along to
why you always be so sad?
you got an apartment by the sea
and a little bit of free time
to make your way
oh but that ain't enough for me
I want to shake this life 'till my dying day 

Now I stay up late at night
held still by the TV light
darkening my mind
used to go down to the beach on the weekend
now I couldn't tell you when
I last saw the shore
Oh how the world still dearly loves a cage
isn't that what Maude said?
isn't that what she said! 

Living in a Sunshine State
wasting all my days
working a steady job
I moved out here when I turned 21
to laze around in the hot summer sun
Oh tell me
baby please
where did I go wrong
