Through Pursed Lips

sometimes you just want to make a dennis wilson clone and put it on the internet.

I watched your lips when you used to pray the rosary
tightly pursed and moving silently
that was you

I’d fall asleep when you were watching dynasty
had anything ever been so sweet
it was you, and me and them…complete

I want to run in your yard again – the same one
I want to hide in your garden – the same one
And though you’re never coming back again
it’s still fun
remembering when we were young

i watch your face and can see you don’t remember me
“who’s son are you?” you ask repeatedly
that’s not you

you fall asleep and i sneak away silently
has anything ever been so bleak
(when) through pursed lips you say, ‘thanks for coming today’

I want to run in your yard again – the same one
I want to hide in your garden – the same one
And though you’re never coming back again
it’s still fun
remembering when we were young

a thousand years ago tonight
a thousand years ago tonight
a thousand years ago tonight

I want to run in your yard again – the same one
I want to hide in your garden – the same one
And though you’re never coming back again
it’s still fun
remembering when we were young

    You can sneak this onto the Beach Boys Surf’s Up album and few people would catch on.
