endless joys on saturdays
people speak and people sway
did you see all the cars here on the way tonight
great orchestras of line and light
and I thought now there's something that you would like
cause I know you'd be here if you think you could
cause you would never miss a carnival
or a summer nights stroll

it's brilliant in the park today
isn't beautiful is what people say
all the tree's in here are sort of dusty green
all balsa wood and plastic at the seams
and lying on our backs it seems
like we could simply hold up the street
with multi-layered promises
with the sunrise on our feet

stringing up your pizza lights
to support the night
and hold it up on little stilts
a corner at a time
'til it's buckled down
and tangible
cause it can fold against your will

and not that fear ever came easily to you
but when it did you never knew quite just what to do
and while you were trying so damn hard
to just make it through the week
i was already gone killing shoguns in my sleep
and i was flying with nothing but the sneakers on my feet
and i could describe to you the canopy of trees
and i was underneath looking up at the surface of the sea

fingers of smoke hang in the air again
and i still think you taste like cinnamon
and you do what you can
to try and follow through with what you've said
to try and make sure you can entice happiness
to slide your way again

stringing up your pizza lights
to support the night
and hold it up on little stilts
a corner at a time
'til it's buckled down
and tangible
cause it can fold against your will

and not that fear ever came easily to you
but when it did you never knew quite just what to do
and while you were trying so damn hard
to just make it through the week
i was already gone killing shoguns in my sleep
and i was flying with nothing but the sneakers on my feet
and i could describe to you the canopy of trees
and i was underneath looking up at the surface of the sea

it feels so weird to see
you acheive all the things that we
sat down and once talked through
and now you do
