Our friends on the front porch, telling jokes
And they swing swiftly towards happier times
Expending lines and finding more energy for the effort
And getting distance from that front porch spotlight

But us, we found peace in shadows
Long enough to see the monsters rise
Candy's got some space to fill in her daydreams
Living high on yesterday's lie

Talking to me about some 0% interest
And how she got a better deal than the next guy
And the way the lightning shocked us
When we were lost
And looking down that long Missouri highway

Your hair was longer then and now I remember
Oh, the roads unencumbered by cats
They're burning like wet matches
Through my miracle mile mind

You left your thumbprint inside me
Now for months it seems
But mine only brushes your soft surface
And somehow it leaves me listless

My tongue curls under my lips, oh yes
So I can't speak to tell you of the months before I met you
And the way the truth, it locked us
Right about the time after the lightning shocked us

When we were young and missing
Round that small New England byway
Our lives they were sheltered then and I now I remember
Well it's not even being about that anymore

I gotta get you down
Those tiny fragments of perfection
They please me in a time unchanged
When it's not the same beginning
Or along awaited end

If I knew all the words
I would write myself out of here
If I was all the colors
I would paint you pretty in gold in a picture
So I'm told, little sister
So now I'm sold, little sister

Why don't you tell me about
The sunsets in Sweden
And the laws of Eden
And how you were the Rock of Gibraltar
And how they called you Foxy

Well that's another whole box of Pandora's
That's another whole box of them ties
Slide your foot off the gas
Before we crash right back into the median

It separates our house from the middle of the street
Talking about our house is on the front porch
Telling jokes and they swing swiftly towards happier times
Expending lines and finding more energy for the effort

And getting distance from that front porch spotlight
But us we found peace in shadows
Long enough to see a monster die
We all need to find a little space in our daydreams

Long enough and just so long
Long enough, just as long, just so long
As it's long enough, is it long enough?
Is it long enough for me? Long enough for me to chew on

If it isn't, if it isn't, if it ain't, if it don't, if it can't then it won't
And that's just the way that it goes
