Life is good
Grass is green
Come ride with me
Down 62
'Cause all I want
Is to be with you
Past rusted out
Faded towns
Little places
Broken down
Life is good
When I'm with you
I don't need
Anything.

I just wanna live like this now and forever
I just wanna live like this now and forever
I just wanna live like this now and forever
Now and forever, forever

Crystalline
Those perfect dreams
Its all wide open
At seventeen
Start again
Me and you
A simple life
On Route 62
Rusted out
Broken down
Little places
Falling down
Life is good
Or so it seems
I don't need
Anything.

I just wanna live like this now and forever
I just wanna live like this now and forever
I just wanna live like this now and forever
Now and forever, forever

I just wanna live like this now and forever
I just wanna live like this now and forever
I just wanna live like this now and forever
Now and forever, forever

david lowery got great wit. always love hearing cracker & cvb.
Yes, given that this song writer has also worked as a quant and college lecturer, maybe his lyrics aren't intended at face value...
No way is he singing  about 2020. 
cracker can rip off whoever they want. y'all gonna wait a long time for another David Lowery - the patron saint of no fucks given. amen. love the stones too : )

Hardly. Are you actually listening to the song? Different tempo, different melody, different voice. But yeah, other than that, a perfect match!
 

So let me see if I understand. He just wants to live like this forever. Did I get that right?
Quite likeable but the end seemed to go... for... ever..
Me diggin' it.
You've got it all wrong: his real hero is Steve Wynn & The Dream Syndicate, circa 1984.
sounds like a contemporary country music song though it doesn't mention beer and pickups.

I agree with CastelloKid
My god, both of those bands were very much better than this.

I think that's a Vox Continental.

I think many people take Cracker way too seriously. They are sarcastic and sardonic, making their points with catchy tunes but great lyrics. Too bad they're mostly associated with "Low" for most people. Some great songs out there, even if "Forever" didn't really have many. Still...
...More Cracker, please!
 
Completely agree with this!

You should be so lucky.

Musical stylings are almost intiresting, but the lyrics are a bit trite for my tastes (at least at the moment)

Check out the bands on the AMG site (see link above). They have nothing to do with one another.

This has a different sound from some of their other stuff, but I never heard a song from cracker that I didn\'t like :bounce:
:roll: It sounds like driving through...forever
Nice little song. At first, it sounded like this could be a Tom Petty song from his early days... :wave:
