Just down the street from me
Nancy and her family are on top of the world
They never seem to be
Anything less than free

And oh to live the life of a happy heart
And oh to be just fine right from the start
And everything’s fine from what we see

But what do I know
What do I know
We don’t always feel just what we show
What do I know
What do I know
That which doesn’t kill just makes things grow (grow)

And just down the street from me
Nancy and her family have called it quits
Some things weren’t meant to last forever
Twenty-five years have finally come to this
And it’s the end of our life together
But it’s only time when you think of it

No one likes to lose their mind
But I have simply lost my mind

What inspires you
Should entire you
Live how you want to be loved x 5

    General CommentAh, I thought I should mention when they sing this live they Chris changes the line "Nancy and her family have called it quits" to "Nancy's family has gone to shit." Just so ya know.

    Oh, and this song is so beautiful. Chris Otepka is amazing.
