Our friends on the front porch telling jokes And they swing swiftly towards happier times Expending lines and finding more energy for the effort And getting distance from that front porch spotlight
But us we found peace in shadows Long enough to see the monsters rise Candy's got some space to fill in her daydreams Living high on yesterday's lie
Talking to me about some 0% interest And how she got a better deal than the next guy And the way the lightning shocked us When we were lost And looking down that long Missouri highway
Your hair was longer then and now I remember Oh the roads unencumbered by cats They're burning like wet matches Thru my miracle mile mind
You left your thumbprint inside me Now for months it seems But mine only brushes your soft surface And somehow it leaves me listless,
My tongue curls under my lips oh yes So I can`t speak to tell you of the months before I met you And the way the truth it locked us Right about the time after the lightning shocked us
When we were young and missing Round that small New England byway Our lives they were sheltered then and I now I remember Well it`s not even being about that anymore
I gotta get you down Those tiny fragments of perfection They please me in a time unchanged When it`s not the same beginning Or along awaited end..
If I knew all the words I would write myself out of here If I was all the colors I would paint you pretty in gold in a picture So I'm told little sister So now I'm sold little sister
Why don't you tell me about The sunsets in Sweden And the laws of Eden And how you were the Rock of Gibraltar And how they called you Foxy
Well that's another whole box of Pandora`s, That's another whole box of them ties Slide your foot off the gas Before we crash right back into the median
It separates our house from the middle of the street... Talking about our house is on the front porch Telling jokes and they swing swiftly towards happier times Expending lines and finding more energy for the effort
And getting distance from that front porch spotlight But us we found peace in shadows Long enough to see a monster die. We all need to find a little space in our daydreams
Long enough and just so long. Long enough, just as long, just so long Ss its long enough is it long enough? Is it long enough for me? Long enough for me to chew on.
If it isn't, if it isn't, if it ain't, if it don't, if it can't, then it won`t And that`s just the way that it goes
