about

I was visiting some friends on Victoria Drive in Vancouver and as I was leavin I said "Here we go again, I'm stoned and leavin'." My buddy Cam said "that'd make a cool song". We both wrote one, here's mine.

lyrics

well I went to see some friends of mine down on Victoria Drive
and I knew that they were home cause they were hangin out outside
and the song that they were singin I didn't know cause it wasn't mine
so I rolled one up and stayed for awhile, he's never on time

chorus

now I'm stoned stoned and leavin
I believe I like this feelin
now he's alone
I'm alone and thinkin that I gotta get home to see my sweet thing

I started headin to the Rime it's an eatery to dine on Commercial Drive
and I knew that I should phone say I'm, late but I'm alive
then I feel this thirsty hunger but I didn't have a dime
so I rolled one up and stayed for awhile, he's never on time

chorus

an idea came to mind I'll take this guitar of mine I'll earn that dime
sing a song one that I know and I can tell her that I tried
and the song that I was singin the Sublime country kind
made me roll one up and stay for awhile, he's never on time

chorus

now with my future undefined I shook my head and my spine to realign
put away the homegrown and let this feelin subside
but when I finally talked to my sweet thing she kinda gave me a sign
so I rolled one up stayed for awhile and went and got some wine

She said you're stoned and now I'm leavin
find someone else to call your sweet thing
now I'm alone, I'm alone and drinkin
but I got some wine to help my healin
