My Glorious Excesses

My glorious excesses always paved the way
But elsewhere shall I find
That clear spring day from childhood
I still remember, the auburn hill
My glorious excesses always paved the way
But elsewhere shall I find
That clear spring day from childhood
I still remember, the auburn hill

And how about the song I wrote for you?
The undergraduate with the faded shoes
The bright spark boy who told a joke or two
I promised that only the best would do
I promised forever on a green screen love
I promised together when the scene seemed rough
You’d stick by me and I’d stick by you
I took more and more and I never got through

And now I forget why I’m heading out
To let these regrets fall away with doubt
These dire subsets always feed that soul
The emptyness left where complete is whole

My glorious excesses always paved the way
But elsewhere shall I find
That clear spring day from childhood
I still remember, the auburn hill
My glorious excesses always paved the way
But elsewhere shall I find
That clear spring day from childhood
I still remember, the auburn hill

And when alls in doubt and the rage is flawed
The tidal wave takes us to the merry shore
The passion that comes so drenched in fear
Theres nothing to leave us only swollen tears

Theres one place to turn to that kills the pain
If I leave your first darling I’m to blame.

My glorious excesses always paved the way
But elsewhere shall I find
That clear spring day from childhood
I still remember, the auburn hill
My glorious excesses always paved the way
But elsewhere shall I find
That clear spring day from childhood
I still remember, the auburn hill

Theres one place to turn to that kills the pain
If I leave your first darling I’m to blame.

My glorious excesses always paved the way
But elsewhere shall I find
That clear spring day from childhood
I still remember, the auburn hill
My glorious excesses always paved the way
But elsewhere shall I find
That clear spring day from childhood
I still remember, the auburn hill
