Lyrics

This used to be a town

The crumbling factories the broken homes

Now when I walk around

I pretend that they’re the ruins of Rome

I’m on the honeymoon we still ain’t been on yet

And just like that I’m back at our front step

And I wonder where you are

 

Now lately you come home

Later and later every night

And I know you’re not alone

But I’m too scared to ask you why

You sneak up the steps and look in on the kids

And in the dark undress and slip on into bed

And wonder if I’m up

 

My life is like I’m reading some old mystery

My eyes so tired I cannot read the text

So I turn out the light and close my eyes and try to sleep

And wonder what comes next

 

Monday morning’s on the skids

I take the Charger to the shop

You’ve had that car since we were kids

You used to try to outrun the cops

And in the parking lot behind the A&P

We made love for the first time in the backseat

Now I wonder what she’s got left

 

We had it all figured out

When all we ever had were dreams

A couple kids and a house

And we had it all or so it seemed

From playing high school ball to working for your dad

I guess those dreams were all we ever really had

And I wonder is this all

 

My life is like I’m reading some old mystery

My eyes so tired I cannot read the text

So I turn out the light and close my eyes and try to sleep

And wonder what comes next

 

These days they pull me in and pull me under

And I’m staring at these trains all headed west

My heart begins to pound just like thunder

And I wonder what comes next
