She comes out on Sundays
She moves after midnight
When everything is secret and sacred.

She’s got medical reasons
For all these prescriptions.
I suppose that’s enough explanation.

I asked what she’s up to
She just looked at the floor.

She’s done playing music.
She’s bored of the tunes.
She don’t go to shows anymore.

She asked where I’m living these days.
I decided to tell her the truth.

She don’t go out to the shows anymore
But she still knows the boys and the blues.

Shake off the shadows.
Bash through the borders.
Wipe the grime from the windows.
Look out over the corners.
Sandra from Scranton.
All dressed up and dancing.

We were poised to make moves
We shined up our shoes.
Expectations were major.

We posed for the pictures
All shiny and shattered.
Your sister went off with some actor.

So we scattered like spores
Trying to find purchase in dirt.

She once met a boy and she thought
it might work.
The boy that she met wasn’t sure.

Shake off the shadows.
Bash through the borders.
Wipe the grime from the windows.
Look out over the corners.
Sandra from Scranton.
All dressed up and dancing.

We aren’t going to split any atoms tonight.
The future is only uncertain.
The guys on the bikes got whatever
you like and
A bird in the hand is worth something.
I didn’t go to work on Monday or Tuesday
No, that’s not how I planned it.
Blew out the first few days of this week
On Sunday with Sandra from Scranton.
