lyrics

(Hi, well I just called you to let you know that there's an eclipse of the moon...And if you look out to the east...well..I guess you're not taking calls...)

A phoenix rose
Up from the stove
Holding at a simmer
It was an omen
Oh yes an omen
So we boiled it for dinner

Never was I much of a believer
But then Percy’s Song comes on in the hills
And I see a roadmap and a skyline
and the doctor gave me pills

Write it once cause we were cool
Get home late cause we were cool
Light a match and throw it out
Cause we were cool

At work we like
To say a knife
Is never what’ll get you
I’m holding out
That you’ll be nice
I think you might forget to

Never was I much for leaving early
But I already said I’d bring the cake
And I see your wife and I see diamonds
And I wonder if they’re fake

Write it once cause we were cool
Get home late cause we were cool
Light a match and throw it out
Cause we were cool

Do you
need a mirror?
It’s been a year of expensive reflecting
I look tired
Cause you are tired
Babe, we call that projecting

At 5pm I should be in a church
She invited me to come inside the church
You know I didn’t make it to the church
And I wasn’t in the Grand Canyon at sundown

Never was I much for telling lies
But then lightning’s striking heavy in July
And I saw it all in pictures
All in pictures and goodbyes

Write it once cause we were cool
Get home late cause we were cool
Light a match and throw it out
Cause we were cool

Write it once
Stay out late
Light a match
And throw it out
