Take a blade of grass between your teeth.
Check the sun it's all alone in blue with nothing underneath.
(Fifty-fifty)
Fifty-fifty that it's going to be going your way.
(Two-to-one)
Two-to-one the evening comes at you with nothing to say.

Take one take two and then take ten.
(We made construction paper chains.)
Take five take six from eleven and then,
(Dream houses fall to cards again.)
Dream houses fall to cards again.

Perfect day's the one we leave behind.
(So much to do...)
So much to do ahead but I don't mind.

Take a blade of grass between your teeth.
Take a walk to the bus stop wait a while.
See the driver coming up on a thousand miles. (Coming up on a thousand miles.)

Take one take two and then take ten.
(Ear to the ground for distant trains.)
Take five take six from eleven and then.
(Our houses shake the ground again.)
Our houses shake the ground again.

So much to do tomorrow, I don't mind.
The perfect day's the one we leave behind.

Crisp pollen interference patterns like a crowded pool. (Oooo...oooo.)
See nature starting up or shutting down its summer school. (Oooo...oooo.)
I was to be the boy congratulated just for growing tall. (Oooo...oooo.)
When I should have been the girl who walks through walls. (Oooo...oooo.)
Walks through walls. (Aaaah...)

Kids on skateboards take the residential corners so fast.
(Take one take two and then take ten.)
(Take five take six from eleven and then)
They watch each other like a comet from the distant past.
(Take eight and nine you're seventeen.)
(Looks back from behind a one-way screen.)

(To tell the world.)
Three-season porches with a car door open on contentment why.
(You tell the world who you adore.)
In your future you'll remember we were happy on the same...
(You'll be compelled to the tell the world.)
Weekday that made you start to cry.
(At for seconds. Take three take four.)
(You take the world. You take the world.)
(You take the world. You take the world.)

So much to do tomorrow, I don't mind.
