Sat outside my front window
This story's going somewhere:
"He's well hung," and I am hanging up
There's a song on the radio that says:
"Let's get this party started...
Let's get this party started. "
What you do on your own time's just fine.
My imagination's much worse, I just never want to know.
And what meant the world imploded
Inflated then demoted
All my oxygen to product gas and suffocated my last chance
You said, between your smiles and regrets
"Don't say it's over"
Dead and gone
Dead and gone, yeah
The calm before the storm, set it off (set it off)
And the sun burnt out tonight
Reception less than warm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight
The next time the phone can wring my neck as it gets no answer
And of the time that I've spent telling it my roots
I'm shaking in my boots
And still it looks at me like an old friend I've betrayed
The darkside of the doormat is the one your shoes have frayed
What you do on your own time's just fine.
My imagination's much worse, I just never want to know.
And what meant the world imploded
Inflated then demoted
All my oxygen to product gas and suffocated my last chance
You said, between your smiles and regrets
"Don't say it's over"
Dead and gone
Dead and gone, yeah
Calm before the storm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight
Reception less than warm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight
Calm before the storm
Set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight
Reception less than warm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight.
Tonight
Sun burnt out, the sun burnt out tonight
The sun burnt out tonight
