let sleeping dogs lie
they know something that we don't
they just trust everything will be alright
you know we tend to think it won't

so I think of you in this golden light
as we watch the sun go down
both wishing it would put up a better fight
as morning comes around I’m in a new place
a new town

and no matter what we say
it's gonna happen anyway

you grew up in one of those towns
where everybody gets just one tiny square patch of ground
and you gotta keep it tidy and neat
your mamma kept the nicest one on Montgomery street
and you know she thinks, you don't care
since you've let yours go
flowers have bloomed up everywhere

and no matter what you say
it's gonna happen anyway

I got these two friends, they built there own home
it's not like they knew how
it's not like anybody showed them
they just cut some wood, and started to build
knowing that there would be valleys, even though there would be hills
and one day by the river side
they made a perfect circle
around to perfect brides

cuz no matter what they say
it's gonna happen anyway
oh yes
anyway
oh

any way you look at it
you always gotta try to fit it
if it's too big
if it's too small
if it's got no name what should we call it?
any way to have control
as if there were a way to know
the way the wind blows, the way the wind blows
anyway
oh

so I think of you in this golden light
as we watch the sun go down
