  1. Nearest Exit

From the recording Nearest Exit

Older man - Younger woman scenario ...

Lyrics

Metal in her mouth
Ink is on her arms
Certainly not his idea
Of traditional charms
 
Arrived unexpectedly
Incarnation of his dreams
Replacing the complacency
Of marital unease
 
He’s older than her father
She’s younger than his son
Believing in an instant
They both found their only one
 
Remember the nearest exit maybe behind you
Is there time to chance your escape
Well the sun never sets at 7 o’clock in the springtime
Is there time to chance your escape
 
Hopeless romantics
Kissing in the shadows
Aliases and motel rooms
Silhouettes at the windows
 
Her sparkling eyes can see
The lines he cannot read
Soon cracks in the relationship
Deep as cracks in his skin
 
Remember the nearest exit maybe behind you
Is there time to chance your escape
Well the sun never sets at 7 o’clock in the springtime
Is there time to chance your escape
 
Motherhood will entrance her
The bond she’d never found
That child might bind them
Retirement plans never left the ground
 
So she calls it a day
Though loving him still
No longer willing to pay the price
Of such a lonely deal
 
Remember the nearest exit maybe behind you
Is there time to chance your escape
Well the sun never sets at 7 o’clock in the springtime
Is there time to chance your escape
