People --- i'm tellin' ya

I am gloating, humbled and embarassed over the Friendster testimonial I just received from an old friend - so I'll share:
"Kamio taught me how to drink and how to talk on the phone. I already knew how to smoke but she improved my productivity by something like 65%. She was much cooler than me back then, and 15 years later the coolness gap has grown so wide I can't even see her from where I am. "
Old Friends are popping up all over the place, from half a life ago, all seeking out their past selves. It's as if they're following the crumbs back to determine the beginning of where they've wound up... Calls out of the blue, surprises, regrets... It seems like everyone is very suddenly old. Or at the very least nostalgic. I hope my aimless, silly life is less pitiful from their perspective than my own.

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself-Well...How did I get here?

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right?...Am I wrong?
And you may tell yourself
MY GOD!...WHAT HAVE I DONE?
Once in a Lifetime
