​20,000 Dollars

This song is by Henning Ohlenbusch and appears on the album Looks Like I'm Tall (2006).

Everyone I know is 20,000 dollars away from happiness.
Or so they claim.

And every time you go, I can think of a thousand reasons to stay here with me.
I won't say please.
I won't say please.

You can make the same mistake every single day.
And every chance you get to take, you let slip away.
And you can tell them if they ask that I stayed home tonight.
And you can tell them if you like, that everything's all right.

Everyone I know tells me that they're waiting for something, but they don't know what.
Or so they claim.
Or so they claim.

You can make the same mistake every single day.
And every chance you get to take, you let slip away.
And you can tell them if they ask that I stayed home tonight.
And you can tell them if you like, that everything's all right.

Everyone I know.


Nightly Progression

This nightly progression is breaking my heart.
You end up so different than the way you start.
And all your laughing leaves me cold.

Because, to me, it's regression.
It's the loss of a friend.
Your good conversation is now pointless.
And all your laughing leaves me cold.

And all we ever want is more.
And all we ever get is the same.
And all we ever want is a chance.
And all we get are chances.
And all we ever really do is stand and stare in the smoky air.

There's not a whole lot happening.
But there's a whole lot of talking.
Do you know that you're becoming the same person you're mocking?
It's gradual and then it's shocking and it leaves you old.

And all we ever want is more.
And all we ever get is the same.
And all we ever want is a chance.
And all we get are chances.
And all we ever really do is stand and stare in the smoky air.

And all we ever want is more.
And all we ever get is the same.
And all we ever want is a chance.
And all we get are chances.
And all we ever really do is stand and stare in the smoky air.
