Murder (Or a Heart Attack)

Album: Fight Songs (1999)
  • And the hole in the screen is barely big enough for you
    And not near enough for me to go
    And the whole damn complicated
    Situation could've been avoided if I'd only shut the window

    And I may be leavin' myself open
    To a murder or a heart attack
    But I'm leavin' the back door open
    'Til you come back, 'til you come back

    And I may be movin' myself closer
    To a real untimely end
    But I'm leavin' the back door open
    'Til you come home again, you come home again

    And I told the neighbors, I put pictures up
    And handed out some flyers at the show
    And the whole town speculating
    Situations could've been avoided if I'd only shut the window

    And I may be leavin' myself open
    To a murder or a heart attack
    But I'm leavin' the back door open
    'Til you come back, 'til you come back

    And I may be movin' myself closer
    To a real untimely end
    But I'm leavin' the back door open
    'Til you come home again, you come home again
    'Til you come home again

    And I may be leavin' myself open
    To a murder or a heart attack
    But I'm leavin' the back door open
    'Til you come back, 'til you come back

    And I may be movin' myself closer
    To a real untimely end
    But I'm leavin' the back door open
    'Til you come home again, you come home again
    'Til you come home again, 'til you come home
