Ponce De Leon
Splitsville Lyrics


Just like Ponce de Leon
I've traveled far and wide
When all is said and done
Have I enjoyed the ride?

You're puttin' me on
Is this the best it gets?
I haven't jumped the ship
This trip's not over yet

Everywhere I go
I see the world around me
Growing small, moving faster
Will this be my disaster?

Everyone I know
Has counted up their losses
While I'm still climbing mountains
Tossing coins into fountains

Just like Ponce de Leon
I'm running out of time
I've conquered all my fears
I've suffered for my crimes

You're leadin' me on
It's either sink or swim
And when I think I'm done
I'm ready to begin

Everyone I know
Has given up on daydreams
Socked away their possessions
Got enslaved to professions

Everywhere I go
I'm thirstin' for a chance
To show the world that I'm clever
So I might live forever
Just like Ponce de Leon

Everywhere I go
I see the world around me
Growing small, moving faster
Will this be my disaster?

Everyone I know
Has counted up their losses
While I'm still climbing mountains
Tossing coins into fountains

Just like Ponce de Leon
End up at a rest home in south Florida

My mind was blown when I found out that this wasn't Ben Folds. Fantastic song. I'm definitely going to have to check out more Splitsville.

This song just popped up on Pandora today. Very glad that I managed to find it elsewhere. There's just something about it... Probably the piano. Wonder if there is sheet music for it... Anyways, thanks for uploading this. Having no idea when this song will turn up again on Pandora is frustrating indeed.

Found this years ago originally on one of my Pandora stations (probably Jukebox the Ghost station). Feels nostalgic now

@Draconic74 I'm actually working on transcribing the sheet music for piano for this song. I'll let you know once I have a tidied up version.

It's been playing on one of my Pandora stations for several weeks. Discovered tons of amazing artists through them. :]

@kimmieunni That's basically why this account's here- posting obscure songs that really should recieve more recognition. Why don't you do a cover of it? ;)
