She's got curls to straighten out
He's got an answer for everything
You can see the movie that's about
But you can't really talk until you've been

See them all coming up for air
We're oh so tired with something to show
Recognize her footstep sound on the stairs
Listen up high but talk low

A car in every front lawn
More time in every clock
A girl in every doorway
A bar on every block

What we have now...

I'll find the chord to ignore
And a reason outside the gate
Won't do these chores no more
Dinner shifts and coffee breaks
How these ticks of desperation
Turn to looks of sophistication
How that "do or die" front nose
Turns to strands of her wedding clothes

A car on every front lawn
More time in every clock
A girl in every doorway
A bar on every block

What we have now...

The absence of what is wrong
Doesn't something good make
If you're not leaving for too long
We could something good take
Because the presence of what is right
Helps to shape the baby's bite
But if you leave me on a train
You could render me the same

A ring in every church bell
More time in every clock
A train at every station
And a drink at every stop

What we have now...
