Troubled Times
Written by C. Collingwood / A. Schlesinger


From the Fountains of Wayne album Utopia Parkway

When you think you've found something worth holding onto 
We're reaching for attention, hoping she would notice you 
Collecting bottles and thrown-away cans 
Like she was returnable 
One day would fill your hands 
how she loved you, all you imagined 
Fit so well into you plans 

Maybe one day soon 
It will all come out 
How you dream about each other sometimes 
With the memory of 
How you once gave up 
But you made it through the troubled times 

Pining away every hour in your room 
Rolling with the motion, waiting til it's opportune 
Sitting there watching time fly past you 
Why do tomorrow 
What you could never do 
How she loved you 
All you imagined 
All this shit you put her through 

Maybe one day soon 
It will all come out 
How you dream about each other sometimes 
With the memory of 
How you once gave up 
But you made it through the troubled times 

And it takes a lot of nerve to ask how she is doing 
Start with a weak foundation, you will end in ruins 
The ways the days and hours pass you'll never understand 
Falling like rain through your hands 

Maybe one day soon 
It will all come out 
How you dream about each other sometimes 
With the memory of 
How you once gave up 
But you made it through the troubled times
