this is what i do lyrics – rhett miller

this is what i do this is what i do
jennifer 1 was a racehorse-rider heidi was a house on fire
bernadette kept a distance we got tangled up in telephone wire
i’m gonna sing this song forever about a girl that i once knew
and how she is always leaving this is what i do
this is what i do for a living this is what i do
in another life i was a holy roller in another lifetime i flew
i have always kept a distance this is what i do
this is what i do for a living this is what i do
this is what i do this is what i do
every one of us has a secret rhythm beating like a drum
all of us have a albatross and this is my one
this is what i do for a living this is what i do
i could hide it in the attic i could bury it in static
i could only put it out in japan
i could tape my mouth closed i could take another dose
i am dancing as fast as i can
this is what i do for a living this is what i do
this is what i do this is what i do
