lyrics

All our wives are dressing, and all our wives are listening.
Let’s go out and show our wives to all the boys we’d love to be.
Our voices crackle and get deep as the narrative is read.
Our posture is a little buff. We talk so dumb instead…

...of learning from our 20 and dancing with new friends.
And practising our running just to feel good in the end.
Just open up the window in your car and plug into the light!
And worry less, because you’re only doing this a couple times!

All of our wives can show us stuff and we can find some inner peace, if we just muster up some trust and make another enemy.
We get so shy and scared that we must frighten someone else.
It’s sad, but I am smiling, and I don’t need any help.

Running though the park. Running in the snow.
I am an idealist. Come on girl, let’s go!
We go, we go, we don’t know where to go.
We go, we go, we don’t know where to go.
When we’re running up our miles, just like we should.
And we’re writing/riding/lighting candles all over the neighbourhood.
Run with me, girl, so I do not lose my place.
I don’t wanna be what I am, it’s a disgrace.

All our wives are dressing, and all our wives are listening.
Let’s go out and show our wives to all the boys we’d love to be.
