The Delivery Man Lyrics

"Abel was able," so vivian said
her shoulder flung forward
her lips in a purse
she talks like the beauty that she never was
of the fabulous wild nights that she never has

in a certain light he looked like elvis
in a certain way he feels like jesus
everyone dreams of him just as they can
but he's only the humble delivery man

geraldine blushes and brushes away
the cigarette ashes that vivian scatters
stares out of the window at things that she says
while gossip within her competes the widow

ever since he's gone, she feels like crying all the time
she knows for sure vivian is lying
now she has a daughter to raise as she can
she just wouldn't trust that delivery man

ivy puts down the ghost story she's reading
looks up at that face on the wall
thinking about how her father lay bleeding
shot in the back 'cos orders were misleading
and how a flag and a medal don't have any meaning

on the 5th of july as they tore down the fair
and he'd seen all the local girls who were worth kissing
with the smell of the gunpowder still in the air
they noticed that abel and ivy were missing

in a certain light he looked like elvis
in a certain way he feels like jesus
he said "why can't we be kind to me
like you were meant to be?"
"when they let me out, i had a brand new identity
now everyone dreams of me just as they can."
i want to be your delivery man

in a certain light he looked like elvis
in a certain way he seemed like jesus
in a certain light he looked like elvis
in a certain way he felt like jesus
