family cabin you never saw
sat alone on the forest floor

and the wood rotted out slowly
till the roof gave way
but we fixed it up now
on this summer's day

I know that you're into Salinger
and you wanna be his character
I know that you're so sophistica
and I know you live ironica

but I never saw the light in city skies
and I never saw the light burn in forest eyes

if I could design this day
be me and you in no one's way
if I could design this day
I'd never let it get away

saw a thousand eyes in a peaceful sleep
we banged around with our city feet

and we pulled down the sky
so we swam back home
and we drank our tea slowly
with our garden gnomes

if I could design this day
be me and you in no one's way
if I could design this day
I'd never let it get away
