Oh I know you've come so far
and you like it where you are
Yeah you've found your own respective calling
and you know you're good in your neighborhood
but a time is gonna come
in your quiet world when some heartbeat's
gonna start to pound
when the space around you
starts closin in
and the air gets thin

But I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there when the bubble bursts, when the bubble bursts
I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there when the bubble bursts

Oh you never missed a class
never let a moment pass
Yeah by now you've gone thru all the motions
and you've paid your dues, but I've got bad news
Seems you've got a bridge to cross
and this time it's gonna cost too much
as you realize they false advertise
in the magazine where you found your dream

and I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there when the bubble bursts, when the bubble bursts
I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there when the bubble bursts

This whole scenario, it sounds so familiar to me
but I know you can only find out for yourself
and that'll be such a sad sight to see

Oh you think I'll get a buzz
sayin' I told you so about the way it was
but I myself never did recover
from the times I saw when I hit the wall
Wish I knew how to get through
I would shout all night but you can't hear
past the books you've read
printed in your head
past some TV show
all the things you know

Oh, I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there when the bubble bursts, when the bubble bursts
I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there
I don't wanna be there when the bubble bursts
Song Comments

Songwriters Appreciation Society
Odd that I decided to select this song as an example of good songwriting from the many "Last Rock Hope" offerings at IMP. However, it's a sign of a good songwriter to be able to present the bare bones of a song and still manage to get through to the listener, no big production, no gimmicks, just a pure, honest, tuneful song with meaningful lyrics and a plaintive vocal. And, I'm sure this guy's bubble will never burst, there's probably a vintage FT Soaky in his bathroom.


The Best of Time's
an ode to all the artists who never got to where they were headed.


Betty
it will, sometimes it feels like it already has.


The Quieter Side of Father Time
This song goes out to all the indie artists out there who watched their dreams fade to dust. Produced by Mike Martin.


Cheryl Blossom
She's so focused, she gives her everything, but things never turn out as well as she would hope.
