are you like this every night?
are you ever so polite?
call it cold feet, call it fright
just leave on the pilot light

well I forget to send those postcards from Upstate New York
so if you're disappointed seal it with a simple piece of cork
and just cooperate and make all of your movements sound
wear a somber face until I come around, come around

well she moved back to town just as fast as she could
and the devil was nipping at her heels
and while she searched for something that she'd never find
we held onto what we knew was real
oddities and bootlegs and sundry items
purchased from the grand emporium
don't lose your head for sake of fear
'cause upwards is the only way to climb
from all the way down here

wonder what Virginia's like
do you think it's very nice this time of year?
'cause I had a friend there who grew some vegetables
in a compost patch
ain't it weird how something good can come from
something like that?

well I forgot to bring those flowers up from down in Dixieland
so if you're disappointed, look up, close your eyes and clasp your hands
and just cooperate and make all of your, make your movements sound
then redeem the time until our blessed savior comes around, comes around

well she moved back to town
'cause things just weren't working out
and the devil was always at her heels
and while she searched for something that she just might find
we groped around in the dark for years
oddities and second-hands and antique items
purchased from the grand emporium
don't lose your way for sake of fear
'cause redemption is a shining light
that glows from up there all the way down here
