lyrics

When I hear tales about your younger days
I can't relate... I can't
Electric acid and a purple haze
And other misbegotten plans

But every word you speak
Fails to synthesize
Kisses by the creek
Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes
Tell me 'bout that same sad story
Same sad story
Same sad story tonight

We all throw pennies in the wishing well
And say our prayers... our prayers
And I know that there's a place reserved in hell
For every kid who doesn't care

But every word you speak
Fails to synthesize
Kisses by the creek
Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes
Tell me 'bout that same sad story
Same sad story
Same sad story tonight

I won't interrupt this time
Though by now we're just running our lines
Playing our roles
Turning it over and over

The cat's away, the mice will quake with fear
I know just how they feel
I've held these feelings like they're souvenirs
To prove that what I felt was real

But every word you speak
Fails to synthesize
Kisses by the creek
Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes
Tell me 'bout that same sad story
Same sad story
Same sad story tonight

Every word you speak
I can't sympathize
Kisses by the creek
Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes
Tell me 'bout that same sad story
Same sad story
Same sad story tonight
