Sat outside my front window
This story's going somewhere
He's well hung and I am hanging on
There's a song on the radio that says
"Let's get this party started"
So let's get this party started

What you do on your own time's just fine
My imaginations much worse
I just never want to know
And what meant the world had folded
Like legs and fingers holding on to
What escapes me what he has:
A better kiss that never lasts

[Chorus]
You said between your smiles and regrets
"Don't say it's over"
Dead and gone
Dead and gone yeah

The calm before the storm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight
A reception less than warm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight

This is me standing in the arch of the door
Hating that look that's on your face
That says there's another fool like me
There's one born every minute
There's one born every minute

What you do on your own time's just fine
My imaginations much worse
I just never want to know (never want to know)
What meant the world imploded
Inflated then demoted all my
Oxygen to product gas
And suffocated my last chance

[Chorus]

Calm before the storm (set it of, set it off)
Calm before the storm (set it off, set it off)

The calm before the storm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight
A reception less than warm set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight

Sun burnt out tonight
The sun burnt out tonight
