LA LA LA

Heard you called it quits and spelled it out the day we met. You said, "We're not gonna take this lying down. We;re not gonna take this lying down!" The evening was clear and brief, walked several blocks of empty streets, it's a shadow world hanging over our heads.
It's a shadow world, it's haning over our heads.

PAY YOUR DUES
"Pay your dues," she told me, "I should pay mine too." Surprise me, darling. The night came crashing loud, the night came crashing loud. The clever kids are buying drinks and we can't make much sense of it. At the end of the evening it's time, and it's the end of the evening.

IT'S TIME
...So smile wide. We're heading through the back streats, we sink into our taxicab and pass the city from underneath. I lifted up my head--
--and a cloak of blue sky met me in the morning. Gathered up my things and I left; I could feel my knees shaking on the bench. Did we let them down last night? Because it all felt the same: we left the building not talking, but no one complained.

NO ONE COMPLAINED
"A mystery exists inside a house that's built like this one is." I loved every minute of the morning air, I loved every minute of it-- though she laughed in sympathy when she caught a glimpse of me.
"Will we remember when we hit July?"
"We'll remember when we hit July."
Well, I don't seem to be able to make it out...
He told me, "You're too young, son." Well, this boy needs a laugh now. You're lonely working temporary jobs, and you can see it perfectly well: close your eyes and it's the ruin of a dream. Now you're here in Chicago, and they're long gone...
They're long gone in your father's truck. Are you looking for your old house? Are you looking for someone now? I called you from a parking lot; we admit that we're having fun. I do believe I understand what he meant when he said skipping steps--

I LIFTED UP MY HEAD
and a cloak of blue sky met me in the morning. Gathered up my things and I left; I could feel my knees shaking on the bench. Did we left them down last night? Because it all felt the same: we left the building not talking, but no one complained.
So smile wide! We're heading through the back streets! Another afternoon, another afternoon and it's only you and me. So smile wide, I say. Smile wide!
