Ahead Of The Curve
Monsters of Folk Lyrics


Another perfect day
They keep piling up
I got happiness
That I can't maintain so beginner's luck

I had shoes to fill
Walkin' barefoot now
Can't tell north from south
But no split hairs gonna get me down

I'm stayin' above the flat line
I'm ahead of the curve
Take a piece of the sunshine with me
On a red eye flight to another world

It isn't any trouble
If you wanna come with me
I know it's out of the question, honey
But I sure could use the company
And a place to be

Now the sky is pink
Rooftop swimmin' pool
I'm not carefree, no
I'm free to care, I just never do

All the bags are checked
And the reasons why
Yesterday lingers on
That's the peace you keep when you say goodbye

You can get what you want now
Knock it out of the park
Bury it by the river
Easy, there's a search party but it's gettin' dark

I won't hold you to nothin'
I wanna make that plane
Probably end up a stranger, crazy
But I'm still hoping there's another way
And a place to stay

What a scene has got you sentimental
When the night comes, when the night comes loose
All the things you've put up on the mantle
What a shame, what a shame it's old news

I'm stayin' above the flat line
I'm ahead of the curve
Take a piece of the sunshine with me
On an all night drive to another world

You can get what you want now
Knock it out of the park
Probably end up a drifter, lonely
But I'm still hoping for a change of heart
And a place, a place, a place to start

It's just so mellow, catchy and endlessly replayable, makes it's way onto my very competitive top 10 songs of all time :)

Why is this whole album not on Spotify? :( I love it so much I want to listen to it more!

Ben Gonzales

That sucks, I'm sorry that's how they have it. :( I'm starting to like Youtube Music a lot better than Spotify anyway, they have a lot more music and also the sound quality in my car is better on it. I might switch over.

Elda715

It was taken off, at least in our countries. It was on it early last year.

Ben Gonzales

It's all on Spotify last I looked. I have them all on my liked songs list.
