she cut the lights so early
8 isn't bed time for us all
but she needs her sleep.
he wonders why his ship won't sail
and begs for another one to come,
then leaves home forever

the only one we don't need now...
saves the preacher, so cut him out.

he stares so nervously
into the water at his feet
he needs to know how long it takes,
to get clean.
thinking hands upon the hands
end the man who thinks he needs
to take us all down with him

the only one we don't need now...
saves the preacher, so cut him out.

he still needs to know that love is real
and when you touch someone it doesn't feel
like you're forcing yourself to forget
what happened when he left you

he's still waiting for the earth to shake, from his first kiss and his first embrace.
