lyrics

Blinding lights, dizzying heights, and those smiling frowns...
Oh big sister, couldn't you let me down?
Hold the line, have no fear, put your trust in me;
First I saw, oh brother, now you'll see.

Later on, when the storm came in,
You told me, "Quit your worrying,
It's not all this or that,
The pendulum swings back
Like a seesaw."

Little life, miniature things, little falls and springs...
In our little village, we're queens and kings.

All the wonder of growing old -
We do precisely as we're told.
And now I see
How it dies:
Bark and it flies,
Kick and you''ll rise
On a seesaw.

You hardly distinguish spring from fall.
You barely remember me at all.
But there are only so many words
And I'd hate to think you could wear 'em out,
I'd hate to think you could wear 'em out.

I thought about calling all today.
I thought of a million things to say.
But there are only so many words
And I'd hate to think you could tune 'em out,
Neglect or reject or impugn 'em out.

Back in our paint-covered smocks
(Remember the faint smell of the phlox?)
With our quaint little box;
Though pueblo it ain't, more like a...

How can we ever get back?
Can we reset
Back to the sweets and the swans
And the swing sets,
The seesaws?

The world isn't all that is the case.
I see it in every single face.
But there are only so many words
And I'd hate to think you could wear 'em out (x3)

Blinding lights, dizzying heights, and those smiling frowns...
Oh big sister, couldn't you let me down?
