Well, I'm lost
I'm afraid
Rope tying down a leaky boat
To the roof of a car on a road in the dark and it's snowing
If I'm more then it means less
Last call for happiness
I'm your dress near the back of your knees and your slip is showing
I'm a float in a summer parade
Up the street in the town that you were born in
With a girl at the top wearing tulle
And a Miss Somewhere sash, waving like the queen
Well beauty's just another word
I'm never certain how to spell
Go tell the nurse to turn the TV back on
Throw away my misery
