lyrics

Do you know if Sylvia’s coming back soon
?
Or if she has already been and gone?
The night came so soon today
Too soon when you can’t face the day when it breaks
And then you run out of coffee

She runs around with all these big strong men, oh
Exquisite love and boogie boogie boom
No face to be seen for miles and miles
Tell all the hours I’ve got to go home
Tell all the hours that I’m coming home

I’ve been climbing the trees here in the garden of second guesses
I’ve been here for a while now, fooling around
And unless I can reckon with the toys that I have found here
I’ll keep picking the fruit of the second best guess

Don’t forget to leave the door unlocked for me
It’s so nice to sit here in the dark with you
A pretty thing can’t stand to be seen
But I will sit here with you, 
I will wait up with you
We can feel it it’s here, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here, yeah

You sign your name, I take a breath
You tell a joke and no one laughs
You sweat, I shake
When our smiles don’t know which way to go
Can we watch them melt away?

I’ve been climbing the trees here in the garden of second guesses
I’ve been here for a while now, fooling around
And unless I can reckon with the toys that I have found here
I’ll keep picking the fruit of the second best guess
