“Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo” by MxPx

Some fans would say this is the very best MxPx album-ever. It is definitely one of my favorites. Listening to it, and looking back on my life thus far is pretty incredible. Tomorrow, I will be 29 years of age. I was listening to this album probably about 15 years ago, when I was 13 years old. I made a home-made iron-on-letter t-shirt (so many hyphens!) for the song “Set the Record Straight”. I went to my first MxPx show with my cousin, Christy. And, if I remember correctly…it was also my birthday!

To say that this music was influential in my upbringing would be an understatement. MxPx always served up a positive message, and became important role models.

Track 2- “Tomorrow’s Another Day”

I don’t want to let my life fly by
Do you ever stop, stop to wonder why?

And time flies by
When everything is ok
It just turns out that life ain’t that way
Big decisions overwhelm me and I know
nothing’s free

When I don’t think of, think about much
People die and we don’t know why
I could use some understanding
Human contact, sign that contract

I don’t want to let my life fly by
Did you ever stop to wonder why-ever stop to
wonder, wonder why?

And time stands still when no one understands you
When you don’t quite understand yourself
But just know this that God is faithful
Even if you don’t have faith yourself

There’s nothing quite like being sure of
What’s inside your heart
It’s mostly simple but not so easy
To know just where to start

Today didn’t have to be this way
Tomorrow is another day
Another chance to make things right
A chance to make sense of last night

A chance to fully live your life
I don’t want to, I don’t want to, you don’t want to
