Everyone, everywhere, all the time
Waiting on a soft messiah 
Everyone, everywhere, all the time
Waiting on a simple sigh of relief

And if you ever really died
I would be surprised 
Life is long 
Long enough to be mean
Life is short, short enough to mean something 
To those who long 
Those who long for longer

The ebbing of your ebullience 
Is evident in every dent 
Come on, let's kick some car doors in 
You're what I'd hoped I’d lost
Your wide eye'd hope that I’d lost
You're what I’d really hoped that I’d lost

How many blankets are in world? 
How many blankets are in the world? 
And how many blankets have existed? 
Is there an answer if we can't have it?

Life is long 
Long enough to be mean
Life is short 
Short enough to mean something
To those who long
Those who long for longer

"Tonight, Tonight" is on the radio 
And it's 1998
And I'm alone 
But if it's Billy's song
It's mine to hold

You're what I'd hoped that I’d lost
Your wide eye'd hope that I’d lost
You're what I’d really hoped that I’d lost
