Your teeth carry marks, pictures, stories and charts
and biting that lip won't hide a lot.
where's your charm?
don't know. i guess i lost track
or no, i think i left it in that diner with my sister. could i get it back.
i want it back.

to think timing askew, to make sense of what we knew
a date had been placed for i
thought that we thought the same in adding that spot to your name
was my name. my name.

i've got this anxious feeling, for what? i don't know.
and i'm surprised the right track meant a back track down the slope.

Now comes the hard part
the most awkward family just to sit and eat cake in that still, skyline room oh what now? what now? what now?

Are we right to drink wine? cause this seems out of place.
every cup in the air, a slap to their face, so you waited and you waited.

    General CommentThis song is about an engaged couple that calls off their wedding, and then have to tell their families the bad news. It's horribly awkward and they put it off until the very end of the evening, after dinner and dessert when they're just sitting in the parlor drinking wine.
