"A Measure of Life" as written by and Michael Thomas Nyhan James Benjamin Thomas....
she held a thrift store pose with Cure on the stereo
a pastor for the scene

the way she stood on her toes for songs that she didn't know
and lyrics kids can't read

she was pretty in pink with sleeves like an artifact
multiplied the treason

but he was holding her hand with claws like a weatherman
I'll wait another season

please stand here for a minute
I'll find a way to make it
and cross that frozen garden line

please wait here for a minute
I'll find a way to leave it
I'll find a way to make you hurt

when the borders long gone and we're reunited
you won't break for me

when our secret of love is drowned on the stereo
just choose the wedding theme

now you swear you're back with eyes that can haunt me
and bruises left on your knees

just a punk rock queen lost in your coronation
this night belongs to me

please stand here for a minute
I'll find a way to make it
and cross that frozen garden line

please wait here for a minute
I'll find a way to leave it
I'll find a way to make you hurt

in a moment they're gone and I'm left and holding
it takes a moment

leave your name on the stereo

and you don't know what it's like

just stand on your toes and watch me, watch me go
just stand on your toes for lyrics you didn't know

just stand on your toes and watch me, watch me go
