lyrics

Congratulations honey
It's once again that time of year
Your dad's Disability money
Seemed to make the bad things disappear
But it's even cold when it's sunny
It's even cold when you're near me
I tried too hard to be funny
I tried too hard for you to hear me

When the family storage unit closes forever
And you'll never hear the motorized ornaments again
In some white trash towns where the solace drowns whenever
The muffler putters away like a birthday balloon
Losing wind

I lost your name in the autumn
Is there something else that I can call you?
You left me down at the bottom
Is there something I could do to stall you?

Because there's 30 years of back-to-school tears in your eyes
With the cleaning supplies that smell like coming home
And the leaves that scrape in their escape, it implies
A familiar voice that's growing faint
On the other end of the telephone

When the family storage unit closes forever
And you'll never hear the motorized ornaments again
In some white trash towns where the solace drowns whenever
The muffler putters away like a birthday balloon
Losing wind

Thinking about some house I knew in college
Thinking about some girl I knew in 6th grade
Thinking about the taste of her apology
And the smell of the coffee that my dad made

Congratulations honey
It's once again that time of year
