An empty gray box lies open
On a dusty wooden floor
The clock strikes one
And twenty years are no more

Clouds move across the sky
Glistening white on angel blue
I see sunshine outside
But there's no light in here
What's Rapunzel to do?

Heart on the move
A lump in the throat
Toss your hat in halfway there
Supplying the game
It's only a name
I wouldn't know if I didn't care

It's tomorrow today
There's no one in pain
A wooden flowery room filled with light
The clock strikes two
And I'm alone with you
Let's call this place a day and night

And I think of you
As I drink my malt liquor
And I think of you
Sleeping alone on the train
As you point to Pittsburgh
Are we just getting home?
To the bed that's so cold without you
