lyrics

On a drive, going nowhere
Gravel popping, tape deck whirring
Happy couple talk a back road
Face a thistle with a backhoe
She goes:

Take a book for instance
When it's done, you are let down
But when it's smacking in your head
You go attacking for the end
Like a good love, too long in bed, besides
Why should we do like the movies?
Moving doesn't need a pattern
Wooing matters, not the captain
Filthy keyboards, mixing records
Fetch another fizzy beverage
Vision shows up as it pleases
Sound holes echo back our sneezes
Healthy parents, honest living
To be in love, to barely scramble past
The mowing grass, the compost bins,
The washing dishes
Discs our basement's flooded with
The risks, the time it's taking
To find some peace of mind
To bear the frown from a guitar
Awaiting meaning, reading
Keeping dreams alive along the window
Silly green the guilt of living happy
Heart attacks for all the lucky
Wine, the bookshelves, color-coded
Competition keeps it going
Bland relief at barely standing
Fancy-worded nerdy booking
Germ: the food that kills the cooking
Terminal: they don't know nothing
Love denies the dying fear
It's good to be finally here
