Lyric Entry #012

I have a mansion, but forget the price
Ain't never been there, they tell me it's nice

I live in hotels, tear out the walls
I have accountants pay for it all

They say I'm crazy but I have a good time
I'm just looking for clues at the scene of the crime
Life's been good to me so far!

My Maserati does 185
I lost my license, now I don't drive

I have a limo, ride in the back
I lock the doors in case I'm attacked

I'm making records, my fans they can't wait
They write me letters, tell me I'm great

So I got me an office, gold records on the wall
Just leave a message, maybe I'll call

Lucky I'm sane after all I've been through
(Everybody say "I'm cool", he's cool)
I can't complain but sometimes I still do
Life's been good to me so far!

...

I go to parties sometimes until four
It's hard to leave when you can't find the door

It's tough to handle this fortune and fame
Everybody's so different, I haven't changed

They say I'm lazy but it takes all my time
(Everybody say "oh yeah", oh yeah)
I keep on going, guess I'll never know why
Life's been good to me so far!

Best of 2018: Music album

Double Negative
Low

This is it. I've read two reviews that say this album is political, but I don't see it. It's one of Low's best, most complete works. Better than their early stuff, than Drums and Guns, than Invisible Way. It's quiet, it's disjointed, it's romantic. It's an album that demands headphones to hear those little raindrops. It makes you think of the husband-wife songwriters making this in the studio.
