lyrics

our parents’ house isn’t quite the wonder
it used to be when we were younger
always happy to bring our girlfriends home

the driveway next to the flowered vine
whose fingers grabbed onto the power lines
the green they thought would save them made them old

the kitchen shiny with copper kettles
that warm with the glow of the sun that settles
above the sink, giving auras to our hairs

white walls still tremble with faint vibrations
of whispered crying and accusations
our quiet breath, as we listened from the stairs

to keep our hands from shaking when they sat us down on the floor

we climbed the moonlit hills (climbed the moonlit hills)
from our windowsills (from our windowsills)
watched him smoke down on the porch (watched him on the porch)
dreaming of divorce (did we hurt him more)
more things to forget

the clouds drag their stomachs across the mountain
we pick flakes of rust off the garden fountain
and drink for the reasons they warned us of in school

cause there’s nothing so terrible to withstand
as the anger of a gentle man
he hits the table and kicks away his stool

to keep the hacienda alive for another year

we climbed the moonlit hills (climbed the moonlit hills)
from our windowsills (from our windowsills)
watched him down below (watched him down below)
will he ever know (that we loved him so)
so much to forget
