lyrics

Draw a straight line from today
Through the points along the way
In the middle you will find
Constant weighs on your mind

And the sun still beats down
On that sleepy backwood town
As your heart slowly breaks
And the breath escapes your lungs
And the words can't find your tongue
As you watch your neighbour's children play and play

Mother Mary has come at last
Mother may I escape my past
You were certain you had the part
You drew the curtain on that one true heart

And you can't afford the loan
Of your big expensive home
Eyes returning to the silent phone
And the breath escapes your lungs
And the words can't find your tongue
As you're breaking there alone
Oh so alone

And the sun still beats down
On that sleepy backwood town
As your heart slowly breaks
And the breath escapes your lungs
And the words can't find your tongue
As you watch your neighbour's children play and play

The children play
The children play
