Kitchen Sink Drama

Album: The Art of Falling Apart (1983)
  • Passing time in the afternoon
    Cleaning the bathroom floor
    Rearrange things in the dining room
    Covers the chip on the kitchen door
    The paperboy winks as he hands her a paper
    He's cheekier every day
    She undoes her apron and sinks on the sofa
    Throws all her household chores away

    She's in a fantasy
    It's not so hard to see
    That she is living a lie
    She'll never be the same
    She shuts her eyes again
    Waves all her worries goodbye

    Puts on her make-up
    And smoothes down her dress
    And finds the right words to say
    Holds a remaining spark of beauty
    Escape is only a romance away
    Troubles come flooding back with her migraine
    She trembles and shuts her eyes
    It's a good thing that friends come in little bottles
    Time to shake up and prepare for the lies

    She's in a fantasy
    It's not so hard to see
    That she is living a lie
    She'll never be the same
    She shuts her eyes again
    Waves all her worries goodbye

    Pushing the hair back from her face
    Shaping her thoughts in the sky
    Heaven is through her kitchen window
    "Pity it's only a dream", she sighs
    Imagines herself as Elizabeth Taylor
    The paperboy cycles away
    She turns on the stove
    Soon her husband is home
    "Hello dear, it's been such a long day"

    She's in a fantasy
    It's not so hard to see
    That she is living a lie
    She'll never be the same
    She shuts her eyes again
    Waves all her worries goodbye
    She's in a fantasy
    It's not so hard to see
    That she is living a lie
    She'll never be the same
    She shuts her eyes again
    Waves all her worries goodbye
