My words are parked right outside,
But a thief broke in and now my tongue is tied.
There’s no good place to park when you’re on your own.
And everything turns dark when you’re all alone.

So I head downtown to a place where I know I can go and not see you.
But I’ll see you around, maybe soon just not right now,
And in a while I’ll be able to speak my thoughts out loud.

There’s no worry when your freezer makes a holiday,
And soon we’ll be very very very far away.
Could you lend me a hand? Would you be so kind as to
Understand that I’ve got other plans in mind?

So we head downtown to a place where we know we can go and be happy.
Be happy after sundown, so maybe soon just not right now,
And in a while we’ll be sprawled across the cold wet ground.

So bury yourself in your books and your bonds that you’ve made from all your conversations on the lawn.
And tell all those stories that you’ve never told; the boys of the new and the boys of the old.
And if you’re alone and you’re feeling sad just raise up your glass and say “yea I’ll drink to that.” Cause what’s one more night in this place? And what’s one more unfamiliar face?
Cause you can run but you can’t hide, my words are parked right outside.
