Quiet lonely day
On a miracle’s highway and traveling takes its toll
The highway's windy road
Didn't open up her soul the way I thought it would
And I don't think that's good
Guess I thought it would have been the best she'd seen

The straw man's off the clock
She's waiting for his knock in her underwear
His foot falls on the stair
She greets him with a glare that says he'll have to fall
But with her back up against the wall
She suddenly recalls the straw man's just her dream

And it's never quite so clean
She makes the world around me seem
Lavender and wintergreen
When we're side by side

Now the straw man's been let loose
My dreams have been reduced by a quest for fame
Still the straw man feels no pain
She realized in shame and then the game is back
Then blue fades into black
Time takes back the slack she had when just seventeen

And it's never quite so clean
I make the world around her seem
Lavender and wintergreen
When we're side by side

Still a quiet lonely day
On a miracle’s highway and I am almost home
Pick up the phone
Say that living life alone ain't how the story ends
Cause I am here to mend
But how much can she bend till on my side she'll lean

And it's never quite so clean
She makes the world around me seem
Lavender and wintergreen
When we're side by side
