They're all still on their honeymoon
just read the dialogue balloon
everyone loves you--why should they not?
And I'm the only one who knows
that Disneyland's about to close
I don't suppose you'd give it a shot
knowing all that you've got

are cigarettes and Red Vines
just close your eyes, cause, baby--
you never do know
and I'll be on the sidelines,
with my hands tied,
watching the show

Well, it's always fun and games until
it's clear you haven't got the skill
in keeping the gag from going too far
So you're running 'round the parking lot
til every lightning bug is caught
punching some pinholes in the lid of a jar
while we wait in the car

With cigarettes and Red Vines
just close your eyes, cause, baby--
you never do know
and I'll be on the sidelines,
with my hands tied,
watching the show

And tell me, would it kill you
would it really spoil everything
if you didn't blame yourself
do you know what I mean?

Cigarettes and Red Vines
just close your eyes, cause, baby--
you never do know
and I'll be on the sidelines,
with my hands tied,
watching the show
watching the show

    General Commenti have two ideas about this song. my first is that its about trying to keep a marriage that shouldnt have been in the first place together. they are still on their honeymoon where everything else is fun and new and exciting and she is the only one who knows that the fun (disneyland) is about to close and end. the spouse is running around trying to keep everything going, catching the lightning bugs, and poking holes in the lid so that it wont die once its bottled up.

    my other idea, and it might be from left field, is that this song is written from the point of view of a woman who has been sleeping with the husband of another woman and shes observing the marriage.
