lyrics

I never
heard a better voice
anywhere else

you sang
summer lovin’
like you’d suffered it yourself

I told you I’d miss you
you told me if you got the lead then you’d rethink the issue
we traded sweatshirts, somehow mine barely fit you


so I guess this is where it ends
out on the tarmac with your friends
bouncing from backstage to the bench
standing ovations are nice,
but ball is life

six foot four and sporting a ridiculous haircut
you skipped three rehearsals just to practice your layups

but auditions aren’t tryouts
you crossed your name off of the cast list
when draft picks were announced
you’d rather break ankles than legs
and trade dialogue for foul lines
intermissions for half time

so I guess this is where it ends
out on the tarmac with your friends
bouncing from backstage to the bench
standing ovations are nice,
But ball is life

so I guess this is how it ends
jumped from the stage into the gym
a shooting star turned starting shooter
you looked so good in the spotlight
but ball is life
