Put on your best suit and tie
And put on the smile that you faked when you said your goodbyes
I’ll put on my best dress
The one with tulips in shades of blue
And I’ll forget all of the things that I put up with when I was with you

So put down your secrets and the yearbook creases
And I’ll put on my lipstick; you’ll comb your hair back
Soft and sweeping
In a dark basement lost in the shadows we will drift away
When you put on your records of singer songbirds
Who died while fighting for love

Spring came and still I wait
Spring came and they grew up and away
Spring came and I stumbled softly on others far and few
And never could I find a man enough unlike you

So put down your name on black and white pages
Sign on the line and give away all that you’ve made for yourself
If I put down perceptions and my swords
Of sore excuses
What would you be then to me
Nothing more than a man with a mind to change

Spring came and still I wait
Spring came and they grew up and away
Spring came and I stumbled softly on others far and few
And never could I find a man enough unlike you

And I haven’t been touched
Since the day that you went
And the dark wooden floors
They took all I had left

So put on your best suit and tie
And put on the smile that you faked when you said your goodbyes
I’ll put on my best dress
To fake being accomplished
In smooth brown herringbone
And when men in black robes decide our future
Then we’ll know we are grown
