Marbles II 03:51
Marbles (Lyrics by Alisha Goldblatt, José Ayerve, and Thom Monahan) Flight was hours late I’m waiting by the baggage claim I’ve been here twice before But this time it’s just not familiar Dean got down to business He said, “Were you in Seattle with my wife?” Can’t take a suitcase And I can’t tell where I’ve been So you’re taken off my calendar Wait until your husband’s gone Stammered out a reply Something like, “My mother’s sick.” Flowers wilted And “I’ve never met your wife.” Check beneath my rental car Landmine, 7 under par Blown-out pilot light (on the dancefloor) This time you can’t make it seem like Fortify my weakness on the 7:29 from Chicago Can’t take a suitcase And I can’t tell where I've been I can’t feel the letdown ‘Cause I don’t know how it’s been I can’t hear the quiet And I can’t turn off the sound Of the pages from my calendar Wait until your husband's gone Smoke another cigarette Make it to the last drag...
