Every day is a winding road

If ever there were a theme song for academic administration, this is it:


Sheryl Crow, "Every Day Is a Winding Road," Sheryl Crow (1996)

I hitched a ride with a vending machine repairman
He says he's been down this road more than twice
He was high on intellectualism
I've never been there but the brochure looks nice

Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high, everybody gets low,
These are the days when anything goes 1

Sheryl CrowChorus:
Every day is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Every day is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine
 2

He's got a daughter he calls Easter
She was born on a Tuesday night
I'm just wondering why I feel so all alone
Why I'm a stranger in my own life

Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high, everybody gets low
These are the days when anything goes

[Chorus 2x]

Sheryl CrowI've been living in a sea of anarchy
I've been living on coffee and nicotine
I've been wondering if all the things I've seen
Were ever real, were ever really happening

[Chorus 2x]

Every day is a winding road . . .
Every day is a winding road . . .
