lyrics

Pick up the phone
when the ringer moans
You rattle 'round your empty home
'til angels take an interest
and drop by

It's in your bones
to be on your own
and from the edge of this time zone
I feel tectonic shifting
when you sigh

The perfect guests
They show up unimpressed
but gratified to find you such a mess
While stepping lightly
through your life's debris

Those old cassettes
that vintage party dress
and all the totems of your happiness
aren't quite as charming
as they used to be

So start making lemonade
and build up your barricades
I'm the one who always prayed
you'd grow up so strange

Pack up your car and go
Kick on the radio
Let the out-of-towners know
their ghost has gone solo

Uh-huh

Don't spill your tea
just to read the leaves
Don't split the fruit just to count the seeds
Don't pry apart your future
'til it breaks

For when you breathe
your secrets tumble free
and snake the circuits 'til they come to me
as gaudy as a slice
of wedding cake

So start making lemonade
and build up your barricades
I'm the one who always prayed
you'd grow up so strange

Pack up your car and go
Kick on the radio
Let the out-of-towners know
their ghost has gone solo

Uh-huh

So start making lemonade
and build up your barricades
I'm the one who always prayed
you'd grow up so strange

Pack up your car and go
Kick on the radio
Let the out-of-towners know
their ghost has gone solo

Uh-huh
