Lyrics

Petrified cupid’s gaze
Love made for stoney days
Stone-threw my heart away
In the weight of a youthful haze

Knocked up and out of town
High hopes all hit the ground
Hitched up and dragged around
Years of fear for that sound

Shake awake a hope I seek
There’s no caffeine
But the dreams I keep

Trace skin like grains in teak
Golden eyes make me weak
Fear that I’ve missed my peak
Dance ‘round the words, don’t speak

Waste not the things I’ve got
Courage tops afterthought
An over-age debutante
Deserves a new confidante

Shake awake a hope I seek
There’s no caffeine
But the dreams I keep

Antiques and tortoiseshell
Yearbooks that wished me well
Old love on white lapels
New joy and wedding bells

Aimless on lettered keys
Adults aren’t prodigies
But the man I am meant to be
Has granted me amnesty

Shake awake a hope I seek
There’s no caffeine
But the dreams I keep
