lyrics

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
