You were dressed up at the ball
They expected us to fall
From the heavens
It's only seven
They were monkeys all of them
Entertaining summer stain
Wonder whether
it's now or never

Strapped into the monkey scene
Like a martian chimpanzee
Love you more than ever
When you broke my laws

You're holding on but letting go
I'm missing Cleveland and the snow
And lonely thoughts where everybody
knows the truth and lets it be
I have a dream but you don't care
At least it seems so when you're there
What really hurts these sometimes
lonely when your feet are on the ground

There was you and there was me
Like the perfect family
Thought we'd always
Live forever
One and one and one makes three
And it changed the recipe
Glad we got it
truly toxic

Strapped into the monkey scene
like a martian chimpanzee
Love you more than ever
when you broke my laws

You're holding on but letting go
I'm missing Cleveland and the snow
And lonely thoughts where everybody
knows the truth and lets it be
I have a dream but you don't care
At least it seems so when you're there
What really hurts these sometimes
lonely when your feet are on the ground

Once again I live alone
Now I'm older
Never meant to let you go
No

You're holding on but letting go
I'm missing Cleveland and the snow
And lonely thoughts where everybody
knows the truth and lets it be
I have a dream but you don't care
At least it seems so when you're there
What really hurt these some times
lonely when your feet are on the ground

    Woman broke man's dream so he thinks he's gone far removed like the first chimp in space or the next one to mars
