Your grand dad left home for the circus.
He was young just like me, with hopes to explore
He married a girl in Virginia
She could swing the trapeze; they could sleep on the floor

Your mother was born in December
On the one sunny day that winter gave up
She had warm summer eyes that flickered like fire flies
When she stared at the world

[Chorus:]
So why do you leave these stories unfinished
My Cheshire cat doorstop, with tears in your eyes?
Why do you look when you've already found it?
What did you find that would leave you walking by?

She was raised in a new england village
Then she moved to la with her firefly stare
And you loved sunset strip when it sparkled,
You grew up and you sparkled but why don't you care.

[Chorus:]
And why do you leave these stories unfinished
My Cheshire cat doorstop, with tears in your eyes?
Why do you look when you've already found it?
What did you find that would leave you walking by?

And these nights I get high just from breathing
And lie here with you, cuz I'm sure that I'm real
Like that firework over the freeway
I could stay here all day but that's not how you feel

And why do you leave there questions unanswered?
The circus awaits and you're already gone.
My Cheshire cat doorstop with fear in your smile
What made it so easy for you to be walking by?

And what did I do that you can't seem to want me
Why do we lie here and whisper goodbyes?
Where can I go that your pictures won't haunt me
What made it so easy for you to be walking by
Walking by, walking by...
