lyrics

Nothing fits right on this frame, yeah it stretches the seams
Sags where it shouldn’t, chokes parts that ought to be free
Glance in the mirror, glimpse something you don’t want to see

You’re looking older these days, wonder where have you been?
Losing your faculties, lacking what used to come easily
Thinning eyelashes, you misplaced the glasses you need to read

They moved couch in your house so it faces the screen
Cycling the decades, on syndicated TV
Keeping her memory alive on your answering machine
Keeping your memory in line’s harder than it seems

You try to reach out with an arm that caught in a sleeve
Trapped in a house full of things that you don’t really need
Just getting used to the pain that refuses to leave

They moved couch in your house so it faces the screen
Cycling the decades, on syndicated TV
Keeping her memory alive on your answering machine
Keeping your memory in line’s harder than it seems

When did the days get so long? Is it finally Spring?
Worked like a slave all your life just to die like a king
Try to remember how worthy your sacrifice seemed

They moved couch in your house so it faces the screen
Cycling the decades, on syndicated TV
Keeping her memory alive on your answering machine
Keeping your memory in line’s harder than it seems
Harder than it seems
