how can I explain?/ for this trade it's too late/ to sail on past here is the understatement of the year// these resounding sentiments continue bouncing around/ good luck and thank you for thinking hard enough to jet out of town/ set your poker face to stun/ maybe we'll meet up this month/ though I can't say I'm leaving any promises/ there's a good enough chance that you should bank on it// (chorus) how could I explain?/ for this trade it's too late/ to sail on past here is the understatement of the year/ so we'll plant roots near/ never planned to appear/ best guess I'll stay here/ is the under-understatement of the year// and maybe we'll find you/ in your own jungle of/ words and letters that act as headers for something personal// (chorus) how can I explain?/ for this trade it's too late/ to sail on past here is the understatement of the year/ so we'll plant roots near/ never planned to appear/ best guess I'll stay here/ is the under-understatement of the year// so is it safe to stay or is it stale to stray?/ maybe I'll stay either way/ is it not enough or is it on and off?/ lets plug in and look together/ would your friends delay or would they fully relate/ I've been known to dissipate/ no crack is small enough/ I've had too much time off to sit and write you all this letter/ so postmark the date I'll send this memo away/ in hopes of making your year better/ and we'll all dance together/ and I'll dance til' you stay/ please rewind this frantic tape/ then fast forward and I'll wait/ never thought that if I'd stay/ this would carry on either way/ don't you worry your head about it/ I'll be home 6 months if you'll have it/ so pencil in your last tie and win/ I'll keep careful track of it/ be sure to shake any new year jitters/ remember me as the number one kidder/ (chorus) how could I explain?/ for this trade it's too late/ to sail on past here is the understatement of the year/ so we'll plant roots near/ never planned to appear/ best guess I'll stay here/ is the under-understatement of the year//
