He was a husband who drove his wife home drunk from the parties
And in the car he would gently lean her head on the side door window

Oh they build buildings
So tall these days
And in the morning she'd wake up and crouch recollections all day
And he'd take one look at her a say "Baby that's okay"

Oh they build buildings
So tall these days
And she would ask for time
And she would ask for time
And she would beg for time
And call it a gift
And he'd give her time
And he'd give her time
It just sifts through its sift
And it was coffee and coffee and coffee and coffee and coffee
He'd go to work and she'd take a sick day and rot at the core
It would be almost as if nothing had happened

Oh they build buildings
Oh don't they build buildings
They build buildings so tall these days
And shed ask for time
And she would beg for time
And beg for time and call it a gift
And he'd give her time
And he'd give her time
It just sifts through its sift
He was a husband drove time home pine scrub bathroom window
