Drowning in a helicopter Because you heard the world would end This was before email or cell phones And you were trying to tell a friend Drowning in a helicopter Wond'ring if it was true Having no way of knowing Before the end of you

Fear the sun Hate the air Out of doors What creature dare? Asphalt shifting Semen sauna stench Suffer the swelter Halfway to boiling

Now that our lives Have run their courses A pair of marriages A few divorces Our personas Long long gone Unmasked, boring Boring enough to sing this song If you’re on your own Feeling low lonesome If you want a home We could own one We could have a dog We could have a cat We could have a bird In our habitat Go in circles Gradually tightening Sit on the porch and Watch our hair whitening And spend all the Rest of our days Watching sunsets in Ambler, PA Our pretensions long expired Both tired And retired Quit the city Covered in litter I won’t try to acquit me Of being a quitter If we want to feel Mutually accepted If we want to feel Mutually selected If we want to feel Co-validated A little less alone As we deteriorate, kid Got some flotsam And some jetsam If you want some I could lend some Hole up two steps Out of the way In a little house In Ambler, PA Now that we see What we’ve done with our lives And what our lives Have done with us Hole up two steps Out of the way Share a little house In Ambler, PA Spend the rest of Last of our days Watching the sun set in Ambler, PA

What was there, within reach, in front of us, Is what we lived. Please don’t judge us The time, the place, the circumstance The circles in which we ran. Please don’t judge us We loved these things, the only things we knew If not these things, what things would we do? We love these things, the only things we know If not these things, whereto would our love go? What was there, within reach, in front of us, Is what we lived. Please don’t judge us The time, the place, the circumstance The circles in which we ran. Please don’t judge us
