​I'm Still Around

This song is by Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Dealer Incentives and appears on the album It's Not As Bad As I'm Making It Sound (2000).

I met a man on the radio with a turpentine tattoo
He could tie his shoes from fifty feet, he reminded me of you
Why'd you go
Why'd you shoot my brother
He was only teasing
You know he loved your elbows
All seventeen of them

I met another psychopath, he was very nice indeed
He could do a load of laundry with unprecedented speed
Why'd you leave
Why'd you take my hedgehog
He had a spiky haircut
He was no echidna
His attitude just quit

But I'm still around
One foot on the pavement and six feet underground
Oh yeah

I wonder what became of you, we thought you'd be a star
I guess if you're in heaven that's exactly what you are
It was fun
It was asymptotic
Approaching next to nothing
Girl we almost got there
Have fun in Baltimore

But I'm still around
One foot on the pavement and six feet underground
I'm still around
Trying to fast forward the things that we rewound
Oh yeah

Goodbye Jane
Goodbye Julianne

The tape gets worn every time it's replayed
People change and memories fade
She was my world a long time ago
Now she's someone that I used to know

Send a Christmas card every year
How's the baby, wish you were here
She was my world a long time ago
Now she's someone that I used to know
