Moving to the 'burbs...


please don't run away

I had a minor mid-life crisis
and then a revelation of how nice it is
the wisdom of ages
cured my niceguyitis
I took my bike outside
for a casual ride
but kept on pedalling 'til my
heart finally died

Went to the top non-stop
to be the cream of the crop
I said you shoulda left Ottawa
before this next cut dropped
but I packed up my words
and made my way to the 'burbs
I settled in Pheasant Run
on the Barrhaven curbs

pipe up in the back
and tighten the slack
I said you'll never make the big leagues
acting like that
I got a first class ticket
balcony seat
I got plants and animals
and two storey treats

all summer long
with all the soccer moms
balls in the goalie's hands
but your net's all wrong
traces of the fall set in
boredom is a mortal sin
Autumn's colours beautiful
but I can't believe the shape I'm in

Can't believe the shape I'm in
Mightier than the Mighty Quinn
but all this autumn colourin'
is making me shake from within
give me all your suffering
all your extra sin and skin
I'm Heathcliff in Wuthering
gimme all your loverin'

please don't run away
