Song Meaning
Verse 1
Mr. Sandman showing his beam
When he walks into the room
The walls lean in to listen
Surf out brain waves
Click back and forth like old headlights
Sniffing model glue again
Verse 2
Head like a steel trap
Wish I didn't, I didn't, I didn't, I didn't,
I didn't, I didn't, I didn't, I don't
Just want to be a footnote in someone else's happiness.
Verse 3
Does your husband know the way that
The sunshine gleams from your wedding band?
Does he know the way to worship I know
Of the crickets that would convince me to call it a night?
Verse 4
I will never end up like him
Behind my back, I already am.
Keep a calendar, this way
You will always know.
Verse 5
The last time you came through,
Oh darling, I know what you're going through.
The last time you came through,
Oh darling, oh darling, oh darling
Verse 6
Tempest in a teacup,
Get unique.
Peroxide Princess shine like shark teeth
It's a sign, (it's a sign)
It's a sign, (it's a sign)
It's a sign, what if you peaked early.
Verse 7
Does your husband know the way that
The sunshine gleams from your wedding band?
Does he know the way, does he know the way
Of the crickets that would convince me to call it a night?
Verse 8
Does he, does he know the way to worship our love?
Does your husband know the way
That the sunshine gleams from your wedding band?
Verse 9
But, I will never end up like him.
Behind my back, I already am.
Keep a calendar, this way you will always know.
Verse 10
The last time you came through
Oh darling, I know what you're going through.
The last time you came through,
Oh darling, oh darling, oh darling
Verse 11
Does your husband know?
Does your husband know?
Does your husband know?
Verse 12
Does he know?
Does he know?
Does he know?
Verse 13
But, I will never end up like him.
Behind my back I already am.
Keep a calendar, this way you will always know.
Verse 14
Oh, the last time you came through,
Oh darling, I know what you're going through.
Oh, the last time you came through,
Oh darling, I know what you're going through.
