Brand New Shine

Brand New Shine

Soul Asylum

I got something special to show you
But I suppose you've seen it all before
There's one thing I'm trying to tell you
But then again, you've heard it all before

I survived another week just like the one before,
When everything you wanted somehow leaves you wanting more
And I looked beneath the carpet behind each and every door,
Trying to find you something like you've never had before

And it seems we're just beginners
No previous experience at all
Just the last original sinners
And if you need me just be sure to call

And they tell you which way not to go and so you go that way
One child plays with ??, another throws it away
Like a kite without string ?? do anything
I'm trying to take you someplace you've never been before

I see something new in each and every moon
From your old, old hat to your blown-out shoes
It's tried and true, and it's all I do
And I hope it's not all the same to you
The old and new, they get mistaken all the time
Is there something I've never seen before
No, just a brand new shine

Now they're cranking 'em out by the millions
They look and act exactly just the same
And each one's one in a million
And each has got its own elusive game

It's the same old dusty atmosphere just like the other place
I see something familiar in each and every face
Seems to me I've seen you, been here, said this once before
I'm trying to take you someplace you've never been before

I see something new in each and every moon
From your old, old hat to a ?? out ??
When I dropped it and broke it, I thought of you
And I hope it's not all the same to you
And the old and new, they get mistaken all the time
Is there something I've never seen before
