Uncommon Connection
written by John Hiatt

Well I do my best thinking sitting on my ass
Sittin' here waiting for things to pass
You got places to go and people to see
Well honey that's you, it ain't me

[Chorus:]
Shit flying in my head
From every direction
I'm thinking about
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection

Lot of people in a hurry, and they're goin' nowhere
I can see 'em all, sitting in my easy chair
Running to the future, running form the past
Well i thought about it once but it didn't last

[Chorus:]
Shit flying in my head
From every direction
I'm thinking about
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection

You can say what you want, i'm not getting old
I've slowed down time, nearly stopped it cold
I jogged my memory once, then i shelved my plans
I'm tired of holding on to love's clammy hand

[Chorus:]
Shit flying in my head
From every direction
I'm thinking about
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection

It takes every drop of energy just to run my brains
Took a long time to learn that it's only a waiting game
Some people call it depression, i call it a song
Don't worry about me, i'm not going to be around all that long

[Chorus:]
Shit flying in my head
From every direction
I'm thinking about
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection
An uncommon connection
