There is aE middle-aged woman, she'sFm dragging her feet She carriesGm baskets of clothes to aFm laundromat While theE Mexican children kickFm rocks into the street And theyGm laugh in a language I don'tFm understand But I loveA them... why do I loveE them? So theE neighborhood's dimming, IFm smoke on the porch Watch theGm people as they pass enclosed iFmnside their cars And on theirE faces just anger orFm disappointment I startGm wishing there was something I couldFm offer them AA consolation... what could I offerE them? And they areE sad in their suburbs, robotsFm water the lawn AndGm everything they touch gets dustedFm spotless And so theyE start to believe they've not touchedFm anything at all And theGm cars in the driveway onlyFm multiply They areE lost in their houses, I've heard themFm sing in the shower MakingGm speeches to their sister on theFm telephone Saying you comeE home, you come here, don't stay soFm far away from me ThisGm weather has me wanting love moreFm tangible Something I canA hold... it's gettingE cold I sayFm hold up ourE fists to aBm flame in the Asky ToFm block out theE light that's reacBmhing for our Aeyes 'Cause it... 'cause it wouldE blind usA, yeah it willE blind us Well I'veE locked my actions in theFm grooves of routine So I mayGm never be free of thisFm apathy But IE wait for a letter that'sFm coming to me She sends meGm pictures of the ocean in anFm envelope So there still isE hope, yes, I can be healed There is someoneFm looking for what I've concealed In my secretGm drawer, in my pockets deep You will find theFm reasons that I can't sleep And you will still wantA me... but will you still wantE me? AWill you still want Eme? Well, I sayFm come for theE week, you canBm sleep in my Abed AndFm pass through myE life like aBm dream through my Ahead It will... it will beE easyA, I'll make itE easy But all IE have for the moment is aFm song to pass the time AGm melody to keep me fromFm worrying SomeE simple progression to keep myFm fingers busy AndGm words that are sure to comeFm back to me And they'll be laugAhing... and they'll be laugEhing AMy mediocriEty AMy mediocriEty
