Do you still feel younger than you thought you would by now?
Or, darling, have you started feeling old yet?
Don't worry, I'm sure that you're still breaking hearts
With the efficiency that only youth can harness
& do you still think love is a laserquest?
Or do you take it all more seriously?
I've tried to ask you this in some daydreams that I've had
But you're always busy being make-believe
& do you look into the mirror to remind yourself you're there?
Or have somebody's goodnight kisses got that covered?
Well, I'm not being honest, I'll pretend that you were just some lover
Now I can't think of there without thinking of you
I doubt that comes as a surprise
& I can't think of anything to dream about
I can't find anywhere to hide
When I'm hanging on by the rings around my eyes
& I convince myself I need another
& for a minute it gets easier to pretend that you were just some lover
When I'm pipe & slippers & rocking chair
Singing dreadful songs about summer
Well, I've found a better method of pretending you were just some lover
Well, I found a better method of pretending you were just some lover
