Don't just sit there looking oh so surprised
Expecting me to look you over at times
We've been roundabout the ways we could change
And there isn't any way we can see it
The more we look the more we will sigh
Now I'm waiting for the time to pass by
Only then we'll be alone with our lives
Long enough to feel the sense to get through it

Helen says her way is wrong
Not one simple thing will improve it
Oh

Up the Holbert road and past all the gray homes
I am down in fall with no one to care for
Call you up to see if you're feeling careful
I'll be hanging on your downtown forever
Try to picture you at home by the dresser
Just to talk into your ear and feel better
It never goes as planned and that's always painful
I am standing by a phone in the downpour

Helen says her way is wrong
Not one simple thing will improve it
Ah

Look to simple pleasures for shelter
When I see you being fain I feel better
On my feet and on my way to town
Draw a breath and gently feel the ground swallow
All the strain I put on it all
