Well Worth the Time

from All in This Together by Conor Ryan Hennessy

lyrics

I write songs about such and such, to relieve myself from hatred
And all along, my funny mind pines to be sedated
I might never make a living, while I'm living but that's fine
No, I'm not worth much money, but I'm well worth the time

I've drank with men who used their pens to hide forgotten pride
Courted ladies painting hazy, happy feelings I can't find
I've heard whispers inside bar rooms that died before their prime
Sure, they ain't worth much money, but they're well worth the time

It ain't surprising that good people like to buy things
It's just been weighing on my mind, by and by
How people spend their time

There's plenty screens for you and me to drive our minds to nowhere
There's liquor fiends, Percocet queens, that find the time to go there
There's people there like everywhere, they're told their whole damn lives
If you ain't got the money, what the hell's worth your time

From way up top, it must be hot, so close to the sun
I wouldn't know, from where I grow, there's shade and cheapskate fun
I'll drink and play guitar and think of ways to clear my mind
No, I'm not worth much money, but I'm well worth the time

It ain't surprising that good people like to buy things
It's just been weighing on my mind, by and by
How people spend their time

There's fitness clubs, and counters scrubbed, and mantras their reciting
There's business calls, side hustle jobs and self help books they're buying
There's emails there and tweets and shares and stocks will always climb
If it ain't involved with money, honey, it ain't worth your time

'Cause, I write songs about such and such, to relieve myself from hatred
And all along, my funny mind pines to be sedated
I might never make a living, while I'm living but that's fine
No, I'm not worth much money, but I'm well worth the time

It ain't surprising that good people like to buy things
It's just been weighing on my mind, by and by
How people spend their time
