Lyrics

The Room Above (One Room Below)


Look I've got a major problem.
The trash in here has got to go.
I'm clawing at the cellar door,
Reaching up beneath the floor:
One room below.
I think your plumbing needs a fix;
Try minor blues, start on the sixth.

I swear to God it's never been
So easy to be your closet boyfriend
And never will be again...
Until you stop his movin' in.
So lay it down you're only friends;
This madness has got to end.

And it seems like the phone never stops ringing.
And the dance we all do keeps me singing
That we're so out of love,
But in love there's no room.

Well, I got a minor problem:
The love we have no one can know.
Though sometimes we touch the sky,
We're really grabbing at the floor:
One room below.
Though you say that you'll be mine,
The hand I hold belongs to time.

Run me into the wall. My head is (a) ringing.
Start the dance we both do. I'll never stop singing
That we're so out of love
Until we reach the room above.

Run me into the wall. My head is (a) ringing.
Start the dance we both do. I'll never stop singing
That we're so out of love,
But in love there's no room.
