  • What among the lovers
    What twang of temptation
    What brought the house down
    Strange sleepwalkers on the block
    Unfamiliar writing on the ceiling
    When she looks up

    Momma buried pop atop the roof where he slept
    One leg on each side of pointed shingles
    Latest tests prove that she's happier with more
    The oyster is open for any to pearl

    Still she's got three different lullablies to sing
    These fruited images are delicacies

    Was it the fighting was it the fist
    Was it adventure with a jealous twist
    Was it desire for another's kiss
    What brought the house down

    Turmoil and passion such wondrous things
    What they called Summer lovers happening in Spring
    Who's dreaming of who tonight
    Who'll be walking by your side
    At the dawning's first light

    Do all he can to save a soon to be dead past
    Give it all up to find a new way that will last

    Was she wrong to hold his heart another person's hand
    The grass is always greener 'til it's covered up with sand
    Was it other things
    Fate, felicity
    What rousing temptation

    She knew that love could swell without barricades
    Standards must be broken even these
    Now she has three different lullabies to sing
    These fruited images lead her to sleep

    Was it the fighting was it the fist
    Was it adventure with a jealous twist
    Was it desire for another's kiss
    What brought the house down
