i’ll carry the new edition home in the rain before your show if you help me complete it/i’m tangled in wires and cables still/if you help me i need it/the first one I’ve ever had on my own my tiny apartment make sure i don’t miss the morning/twenty and three-quarters then at midnight still it came and went can i fix your jeans as payment/i’m balancing quarters in a stack/because it looks like you might need it if you repair this broken instrument/the second one i’ve ever had on my own in my tiny apartment make sure I don’t miss the morning/another one i’d like to call you my own and the tables turning
make sure i don’t miss the morning/i want you to know/all your postcards are records from our friends, and we’ve got space for it/the neighbors are knocking at the door i can’t hear a word over “kind of blue”/i want you to be the one who replaces my needle cartridge now/ the boxes are empty we can finally call this our new home.
