lyrics

The time is coming when you're going to have to sell,
the engine's running but it's not running well,
and darling don't leave me when the river starts to swell
'cause I don't know if you need me, but I need you like hell

Gonna get a big lamp shade, put it right across the sun,
you know when the light shines through it shows you all the things you've done
gonna look in the mirror, gonna try to comb my hair,
check over my shoulder in the hope I see you standing there

Daddy's in the doorway, he says son you better watch your step
Mama's in the hallway, when I could use just a little help
my uncle's in the pantry, and he's eating food right off the shelf,
and all my brothers and sisters, well they're old enough to help themselves,

Gonna get a big lamp shade, put it right across the sun,
you know when the light shines through it shows you all the things you've done
gonna look in the mirror, gonna try to comb my hair,
check over my shoulder in the hope I'll see you standing there

Grandfather's on the mantle in a porcelain tomb,
and what I can't handle are the lonely nights when he's the only one in the room,
all the yellow wallpaper, well it's falling right off the walls,
I said I'd fix it later but it looks like piss and I don't want to touch it at al

Gonna get a big lamp shade, put it right across the sun
you know when the light shines through it shows you all the things you've done
gonna look in the mirror, gonna try to comb my hair,
check over my shoulder in the hope I'll see you standing there
