this is the song where i listen
this is the song where i sit still
i called the dogs off all the things i'm missing
and to everyone but to you before i set sail

i said good luck, good luck, good luck
these are tough times
but we'll get by
good luck

this is the song where you speak up
this is the song where you get moving
you cried some trouble out into a tea cup
and to me but no one else before you threw it

you said good luck, good luck, good luck
these are tough times
but we'll get by
good luck

I put a shore in front of our apartment
and watched you comb the stoop for shards of porcelain
satisfied that there were none you broke the silence
and after this i promise not to interrupt again

this is the song where i listen
this is the song where i sit still
until our heartbeats drown out the clock ticking
and the song is just i love you and always will

good luck, good luck, good luck
these are tough times
but we'll get by
good luck
these are tough times
but we'll get by
good luck
these are tough time
but we'll get by
good luck

    General CommentThis is a lovely song, and any insight on its meaning would be appreciated, as I find the lyrics to be somewhat obscure. The chorus- "good luck, these are tough times, but we'll get by"- seems disconnected from the verses, which to me appear to tell a story of a couple arguing and then making up. Particularly unsure about the lines "I called the dogs off all the things I'm missing" and "I put a shore in front of our apartment," although I suppose the "shore" ties in with the line in verse 1 about setting sail. And what does "this is the song" mean- is it literally pointing out that this story is being told through a song, therefore "this is the song," or is there a deeper meaning?
