Cul De Sac

I LIKE THIS HOUSE
YOUR FACE
THIS PLACE
I ADORE IT
THIS ROOM
MY CLOTHES
OUR BED
I ENJOY IT
AND ALL WE SHOULD DO IS WALTZ RIGHT ON THROUGH IT
OUR SHACK IN OUR CUL DE SAC

EVERYDAY’S FINE
LIKE SUMMER WINE
WE’RE LOVE BIRDS
WE’RE DRUNK
ON DREAMS AND SCHEMES
IN THE SUBURBS
THIS SEDENTARY LIFE
YOU’RE HUSBAND, I’M WIFE
WE’RE ON TRACK IN OUR CUL DE SAC

WE CAN PRETEND
WE’RE RICH
AND SPEND
WHAT WE PLEASES
WE’LL BUY
THE SKY
THE BIRDS AND THE BREEZES
AND ALL THEY CAN DO IS FLY RIGHT ON
THROUGH IT
OUT BACK OF OUR CUL DE SAC

CHILDREN GROW UP
LEAVE SCHOOL
LEAVE HOME
CHILDREN GET MARRIED
HAVE CHILDREN OF THEIR OWN
THE DOG JUST DIED
HE’S UNDER THE DAISYS

TIME DRIFTS ALONG
OUR DAYS
STRETCH ON
BUT LATELY
EACH YEAR
I’M HERE
SEEMS TO TAKE APPROXIMATELY
HALF AS MUCH TIME AS WHEN I WAS 9
ON DAD’S BACK WALKING HOME
THE TWILIGHT SO LONG
THE ROSES IN BLOOM
WHILE THE MOON LED US ON
SHINING LIGHT ON THE PATH
WE’D SING OUT AT THE DARK
COMING BACK TO OUR CUL DE SAC
