about

The first song I ever attempted.

lyrics

welcome to the real world
you don't look so well
the wrinkled clothes, the trailing voice
you're hurting I can tell

well I'd love to give you some advice
but first let's grab a drink
A Jefferson cup with bouron
will help me to think

I'm the world's authority on love
I'll answer all your questions of
the fires below, the stars above

I've been rejected and I've cried
I've been the cheater and I've lied
now I've got nothing left to hide

if it's a book I wrote it
if it's a joke I stole it
if it's a film I shot it
if it's a cure I got it

I think back on the college boys, they put me through it all
stolen kisses, laughter, lies, triangles, alcohol
but now that I'm so much older
I thought things would calm down
but it never ceases to amaze me
that new temptations still abound

I'm the world's authority on love
I'll answer all your questions of
when to say enough's enough

I'm the world's authority on pain
if you've got time I can explain
how every single scar remains

don't ask the ragged holy man under a tree
he doesn't care, you won't find it there
not the so called doctors filling up the screen
there's too much to lose
they won't tell you the truth

That I'm the world's authority on love
I'll answer all your questions of
the fires below, the stars above

I've been rejected and I've cried
I've been the cheater and I've lied
now I've got nothing left to hide
