The pinup poster on my wall The shape and secret of it all: Grow up Put a frame around it and call it a work of art Am I art now to your eye After ten years’ life gone by Come home To the echoes of songs about waiting by the phone Hey, this is living in a frame Under the glass Over and over Hey, these are strangers on a train Under the bridge Over each other And here we go again Should we pretend that we don’t see The stupid kids we used to be Boxed in By the black matte of time And the white glare of might-have-been Trash to art and boy to man All framed up and here I hang Alone With this great new song about waiting by the phone Hey, this is living in a frame Under the glass Over and over Hey, these are strangers on a train Under the bridge Over each other And here we go again Where’ve I been? It’s like I’m looking from the outside in It’s like remembering what I really am Had I forgotten or did I just never really know Here we go again Hey, this is living in a frame Under the glass Over and over Hey, these are strangers on a train Under the bridge Over each other And here we go again

You come on softly as a spring night Into honeysuckle silence, blue-white moonlight And the paper lanterns dim behind us Strolling down the driveway Round the block you guide us Past the Northside gates, the playground swings Fence cut down so we slip in Tudor neighborhood­—I don’t belong here But I can’t help following Your windswept hair and oversized jeans Your laughter at the stuff nobody else found funny And our hands so close they could be touching Yeah but I’ve already done enough trespassing This could be the one and only time Watch you like I’m going blind Padding barefoot on the pebbled pavement Like it’s cool seafoam or silky sand Ten years nigh Standing by Catch my eye You’ll see why There’s a hole in my life where you should be Some asshole by your side where I should be Don’t waste your time on a dream Of some boy who’s never seen you barefoot on the Northside playground Ten years nigh Standing by Catch my eye You’ll see why.

Congratulations You almost made it You asked for nothing You got me now Don’t go It’s too wet and cold Now it’s getting late And it looks like snow I can play it straight I can be a man I can set it straight Yes I know I can Oh God I have broken my staunch code of honor You’re free to move on So walk out if you wanna But if you stick with me I swear I won’t do this again Congratulations You almost made it You asked for nothing You got me now Don't go Don’t go In this bitter storm Home may not be sweet But it’s dry and warm You’ve long since forgotten what it was about me So pack and unpack But if you can’t get out When your life is a shambles You’ll never be ready to go Congratulations You almost made it You asked for nothing You got me now Don’t go It’s too wet and cold Now it’s getting late And it looks like snow I could be a man I could play it straight Not on a red-eye flight Gone without a trace No ribbon no rose no tuxedoed presenters When you win the contest That no one else enters So don’t play the victim You’re here ’cause you want me to Break you like my bullshit code of honor Congratulations You almost made it You asked for nothing You got me now Don’t go.
