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
