Mrs. McKean
don't throw your name into the water
your husband is gone, your children have grown
and you're alone and half insane

Ms. 20th Century
you must be feeling like a fantasy
with no resting place
they toast you in town and tear your banners down
and you're alone in the march of time

another long dark night
Mrs. McKean, but it's alright
there's angels singing in the sky
and they're smiling

it's just a memory and that's all that it'll ever be
but if you close your eyes
you'll see you're almost standing next me
and I'm never never never never never never gonna leave you
no, I'm never never never never never never gonna leave you

missed the parade, I know you did
it's not that bad to be alone all day and then at night
your head is in a spin
with the thoughts that you let in
are you afraid, Mrs. McKean?

Ms. 20th Century
how does it feel to see the dream is winding down?
is it easy to believe? is the past no small reprieve?
is there nothing more than the march of time?

another long dark night
Mrs. McKean, but it's alright
there's angels singing in the sky
and they're smiling

it's just a memory and that's all that it'll ever be
but if you close your eyes
you'll see you're almost standing next me
and I'm never never never never never never gonna leave you
no, I'm never never never never never never gonna leave you
