about

how's your mom in Reno?

lyrics

Tell me about the time when you painted the pavement red,
where year ago there was a car accident,
and your dad lost his right hand, but gained a new daughter
cuz he killed the kids mom in his baby blue sedan,
that's one story that your father never likes to tell

And tell me about the time when your cousin Lorraine
was way to high to be at that artists' lecture,
and the question she asked is something that she cant remember,
but the artist's answer is what Lorraine recalls,
she said: "Why do you think we even exist at all?"

*And tell me about when I saw you
let's give it a name, we'll call it Tuesday
and tell me about what's it like up at Lake Tahoe,
and how's your mom in Reno?
Do the stars even compare to the lights in the casinos
do you wish it to be there?
Collecting coral on some beach in New Mexico,
the ocean's so far away,
give it another day or two

And tell about the time up in Gunnison
when you uncle photographed those two bull elk fighting
and only much later in the dark room
that he started crying, looking at their antlers and their eyes
cuz he knew one of them realized he was gonna lose the fight

And remind with a kiss how it felt this morning
when I woke up and you were still here
sipping on a Pepsi and watching Terminator 2
and I didnt want a drink I just wanted
to rest my hand on your leg and fall back asleep with you

*And tell me about it so I can hear your voice
Let's give it a name, we'll call it Turquoise
and tell me about what's it like up at Lake Tahoe,
and how's your mom in Reno?
Do the stars even compare to the lights in the casinos
do you wish it to be there?
Collecting coral on some beach in New Mexico,
the ocean's so far away,
give it another day or two
