getting nervous
getting nervous
as he walks towards her house
the night caving in on the roof of his head
the flowers are getting heavier
and his legs are trying to turn around
and go the other way instead
we are getting very small
we are getting very small
we are getting very small
very small we are
we are fading into the background

we are fading into the background

roses are red and violets are blue
we are coming out in purple
roses are red
these violets are blue
tonight we are coming out in purple

okay we're back and we have resumed
we have resumed walking down the street
we have decided to think about something else
when we get there when we get there then we can think about what we are doing
think about what you are doing, what you are doing
there is, there is, there is a telephone pole in front of you
just go around it
just, just ease yourself around it
it's not as hard as it looks
it's not as hard as it looks
yeah, it's not as hard as it looks
it's not as hard as it looks
we are, we are fading into the background
we are, we are backing into the foreground
we are, we are thinking about something else
we are thinking about something else
think about something else just think about something else


violets are red and roses are blue
we are coming out in purple
violets are red
these roses are blue
tonight we are coming out in purple

four phone calls
count 'em, twelve
they wanna know why
she's going out with this guy
they are seriously threatening to never to speak to her again
never again
never again
you know, you know the blow dryer won't work
and she can't find, she can’t find the matching shirt
we are beginning to doubt this
we are beginning to doubt
precious like a tidal wave
the doorbell rings
her mother waves her down to answer for it, answer for it
we, we are accountable for our own actions by the way
we have to answer for it, answer for it
we, we're gonna answer for it
for once you're gonna answer for it

answer for it

answer for it

he leans the flowers against the door
what just happened he's not sure
but he hopes she's feeling better
we are fading into the background
we are fading into the background
cut
