Three kids and the house
Two dogs and a mouse
I got my book group on the weekends and a husband slash louse
Ten grand in reserve
Just what we deserve
Cause here in nowhere we all spend exactly what we’ve earned
Big color TV
Channels infinity
Having too much quality television’s such a pity
Think about the day
Then wash it away
Start getting drunk enough to think the things I’m too drunk to say

We’re gonna be fine
We’re gonna be fine
I’ll contemplate if this is what I wanted down the line
We’re gonna be fine
We’re gonna be fine
Or better yet I’ll just forget so honey pass me the wine

Soccer practice at five
The domesticity jive
I may be feeling catatonic but I’m fully alive
Make it back to the door
Dog vomit on the floor
Yeah this is what I leave the liquor cabinet unlocked for

Goes straight to voicemail
His voice running stale
And then my message is the thunder just preceding the hail
He’s at the motel
She won’t kiss and tell
But I still love him and everything else is going swell
Set fire to the car
Then storm in the bar
And he can stumble out the back but he will not get far
I catch him at last
He’s crumbling fast
Cause when the truth erupts he knows we’ll both be caught in the blast
