Take down the burgundy curtain lets start a fire You know you oughta be working you got one part truth and fifteen thousand parts desire Call attention everybody, it is my turn It's not my birthday party but if you don't blow those candles out I swear this house is gonna burn Somebody get a cup of ice somebody call a cab I gotta get her something nice so I don't feel so bad You play you're part honey I'll play mine The way you look at me funny I think you're a dime Countdown till your hearts on the line I've got infinite hands and no sense of time This house my decadent words and I was a liar and now it's pouring out the window and it rains and it rains and it rains and it rains I envision everybody and you discern hon it gets messy at a party if you don't blow those candles out I swear this house is gonna burn You play you're part honey I'll play mine The way you look at me funny I think you're a dime Countdown till your hearts on the line I've got infinite hands and no sense of time

We opened this cabinet, we emptied it out We broke a bad habit, we laid it all down My favorite notebook My favorite pen Your ready set go kick Lets do it again I am shimmering red and gold like confetti Someone's glistening hey let's go are you ready You look like the view from my autumn hike Where the color and the light shine through and I feel the wind like I did back when I was just a kid on a bike It better be open, you borrowed my clothes And I was not joking, so where did you go? You gave me that quick glance I gave you my name You're doing that trick dance stop playing that game I am shimmering red and gold like confetti Someone's glistening hey let's go are you ready You look like the view from my autumn hike Where the color and the light shine through and I feel the wind like I did back when I was just a kid on a bike I am shimmering red and gold like confetti Someone's glistening hey let's go are you ready You look like the view from my autumn hike Where the color and the light shine through and I feel the wind like I did back when I was just a kid on a bike

I've been thinking about days that've passed through time Sitting on that porch inside of my mind You back the car into the tree Man those days passed innocently It's ok, it's eventually a memory Pull out the drive without starting the car man we're not going very far It's me and my baby outside on the lawn We'll both be drunk before very long The crowd tonight is 500 strong and everything I say is wrong It's ok, it's eventually a memory If you're gonna write another Brian Wilson song you better make sure everyone can sing along Big league dreaming outside in the yard I was chasing the trucks down Francis Lewis Blvd counting steps down to the creek until I get called into eat In the mirror there's two of me my favorite show is on tv it's about as good as it can be but soon it will be time to leave it's ok, it's eventually a memory it feels like we've been here before it's like going around the block just to get next door it feels like we've been here before

Honest Wife 04:44
Your eyes are staring in a dim way you know the boys have got your back what were you wearing here last Wednesday everyone saw you look at that If you free your soul do you even know you are solid solid back you are solid solid black and I walk in wearing a halo you're something married to that quick run in daring to day glow baby I got a decent map are you an honest wife? cause my car's out back are you an honest wife? cause I'm solid solid black How bout a new straight forward answer old rules are crumbling on the air you're out with one face forward dancer kneel down and pray and take this dare If you free your soul do you even know you are solid solid back you are solid solid black and I walk in wearing a halo you're something married to that quick run in daring to day glow baby I got a decent map are you an honest wife? cause my car's out back are you an honest wife? cause I'm solid solid black You are solid solid black and I'm solid solid black
