one fine evening among friends I'm calling you out for
no reason to begin ending so soon
so miss new 9 to 5, how'd this become you
didn't we, didn't we, didn't we all promise not to sacrifice

but you walk around asleep like a machine afraid to dream
it's just your life and one more minute's gone

how suddenly we age but the world is still your stage
you're just a costume change away from a standing ovation

any night can blind the day but it's never looked as good as how it would
if maybe you were here and I mean really here

chorus
so what happened to mystery
and not caring how hard it's gonna be
what happened to losing sleep like we did

well your arms, your arms are long but you're using them wrong
cause you can reach farther even than most can see
and achieve more than those could conceive but believe me - it's not fun alone

what a waste of a holiday this disgrace for the alternate soulmate
hate the life you lead or love the life you know you need

chorus

she's a little bit Punky Brewster, never met a man she couldn't sway
when the rest of the world is a Monday morning she's a Saturday
she's kinda like a force of nature, she's a hurricane encased
in the body of a woman on a naughty afternoon and some would kill to fill that space
but something's happened recently
she doesn't clap as frequently
her face is lacking coloring
replaced by weight she's shouldering
you say I shouldn't recognize you - but I'm calling you out

chorus

what happened to mystery
and favoring cartwheels in the street
what happened to losing sleep like we did
