All I hear is how
How you want it to be
All I see right now
Is that you can’t make it real
Unconscious overload too long
Blew your castles away
Milkman always comes again

You’d make it grand out there
But I always find you here
Cause all that monsters fear
Is the day

All I see you wear
Is a confident smile
All of my concerns
Pours the fuel on your fire
Leaving a war behind
You’d drink till you thought you’d forget
Milkman turned you down today

You’d make it grand out there
But I always find you here
Cause all that monsters fear
Is the day

You turn around
With your head upside down
Don’t know how
To grab it
To hold it
To keep it close to you

You’d make it grand out there
But I always find you here
Cause all that monsters fear
Is the day

You’d make it grand out there
But you’re still just sitting here
Cause all your monsters fear
Is the change
Is the change

    General CommentThis song is about totally about a housewife, trapped in her urban life of boredom and monotony. All the "The Good Life" album seems to me about the normal family tragedies you know, a son leaving, a house wife who hates her life etc.
    Ok, so it´s not a great mystery, the references are all over the song, the smile she puts on so the people dont see her misery, the milkman seducing, etc, but she is too afraid to change her life.
