If Thats Alright - Lyrics by Uncle Tupelo

every day is dreamlikeit seems like, in every wayand that's whywhen I look back on my lifeit's like a slideshow out of focusand as the carousel goes 'roundthe slides are upside-downthere's nothing to make out or even noticewhen will it all become concretewouldn't that be sweetto know where you standbut until then, it's a slideshowthat you're yawning throughor even sleepingand as the carousel goes 'roundthe slides are still upside-downthere's nothing to make out or even noticeand if that's alright, then it's alrightif that's alright, then it's alrightand if that's alrightthen I wanna hear you say itand if that's alrightthen I gotta hear you say it now
