lyrics

Hold the door for her, hold your tongue. Mother’s manners since you were young. He speaks his mind long after she has gone.

Keeps her memories in one place, watches TV stares into space… the stars are lovely but they always fade.

When your ship comes in… that big ship your expecting, where will you be then? Tell me where? Tell me when?

Let’s her hair down, pause, react. Mirror tells her the things she lacks. Sometimes you cut it, sometimes it don’t grow back.

When your ship comes in… that big ship your expecting, where will you be then? Tell me where? Tell me when?

In a tower locked away and no one’s come to save her lately. He’s always wasting another day but often on his best behavior. She still hopes she’ll find a savior. One day the ships take her away…

When your ship comes in… that big ship your expecting, where will you be then? Tell me where? Tell me when?
