My girl, in your weary state, let's crash at your place And sleep in on a Saturday I don’t want to let go of you My girl, where should we go? Cause you don’t have to work on Saturday All of our friends are gone let’s drive fast, headed nowhere What is the highway going to show? Sooner or later we will know
On Saturday I awoke with the early dawn But I fell back asleep until half of my day was gone It’s the only day that’s mine And I waste it all the time On Saturday--
I just got the morning news Garfield kicked a dog across the room even cats have things to do Thinking how the weekend fills the blues Pick up your family go to the movies wash all the laundry burgers and pepsi catch up on T.V. shopping for groceries writing to Lexi washing the Camry mowing and weeding fishing and skiing planning a party sweeping and cleaning eating bologna not really mainly I get so lonely I call my parents Saturday of this weekend the next time I'll see my real friends Saturday I get things done but next time I will have some real fun
To close one’s eyes I’ve tried In the opening, a new feeling But to feel like morning has come As if open windows as if a cool breeze Even when the room is dark and floor is cold I tried, I tried, I tried I have held out my hands in the thinking That I could do anything for so long But to feel the weight of your hands I tried, I tried, I tried Did you reframe the question in your mind? I tried, I tried, I tried
You are the partial Above my fundamental And lately I’ve been A tuning fork You are the charge Up above my monumental And lately I’ve been A lightning rod You! When I need You appear You! When I need You I hear You! When I need You are here
Saturday, as the sun goes down, I call my friends all around. And I say, "There's a pool I've got today, and some food I bought, and I would like to spend some time with you. So come and hang out by the pool" Tragedy could strike us down, but tonight, there's a pool in town. And I'd love for you to visit me, because you are so beautiful. And what a gift to talk with you right now and enjoy some poolside food.
Don’t know what to do at work Check the clock, but it won’t move Showing up and spending Hours and hours at my desk But my last day’s coming soon Friday I’ll show up at 8 And if I can get my way I’ll be gone by 11:30am On my way to Saturday Saturday It really doesn’t feel that far away Waking up in Brooklyn Completely free for three months of Saturday Saturday (wah oh wah oh) la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la ooo ooo ooo ooo oooooo ooo ooo ooo ooo oooooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ---
Saturdays are for sleeping Cause it turns out change is hard Spent the whole week trying to be her best Everyone’s got a demon And if figuring who you are is the worst thing There’s a worse thing yet Saturdays are for questions Keep a line free for that voice Keep believing that you have a choice Cause sticks and stones will do damage Keep it under lock and key And if someone asks, everything is fine Saturdays are for dreaming Living as you are Spend the whole day trying to forget Cause sticks and stone will do damage But the words will fucking kill Brace yourself—it isn’t over yet
I thought you were there I thought you would say what you feel I thought you could trust I would be someone you could tell As if I were prescribed, Designed for your therapy That we would meet in this way, And later learn what it means, So write me down like this, Hear my soul to speak, The pain of wordless love Is a song that I might sing So write me down like this, May God endow my voice, Someday I owe broken glass I owe a word without fear I owe a stepstone to be Some tongue-tied rock for your feet So write me down like this, Hear my soul to speak, The pain of wordless love Is a song that I might sing So write me down like this, May God endow your ears, Someday
