Lyrics to The Other End (Of the Telescope)
Shall we agree that just this onceI`m gonna change my lifeUntil it`s just as tiny or important as you like?
And in time we won`t even recall that we spoke
Words that turned out to be as big as smoke
As smoke that disappears in the air
There`s always something that`s smoldering somewhere
I know it don`t make a difference to you
But oh! It sure made a difference to me
You`ll see me off in the distance, I hope
At the other end
At the other end of the telescope.
The promise of indulgence in my confidential voice
Approached immortal danger but you`ll never know how close
Then down the hall I overheard such a heavenly choir
They interrupted my evil designs
One day you are up in the clouds
The next thing you`re down with the Sweet Adelines
[Chorus]
Lie down baby now don`t say a word
There there baby your vision is blurred
Your head is so sore from all of that thinking
I don`t want to hurt you now
But I think you`re shrinking
You`re half-naked ambition and you`re half out of your wits
Or several tiny fractions that this portrait still omits
And it`s so hard to pick the receiver up when I call
I never noticed you could be so small
The answer was under your nose but the question never arose
I know it don`t make a difference to you
But oh! It sure made a difference to me
`Cause late in the evening as I sit here moping
With a bamboo needle on a shellac of Chopin
And the cast-iron heart that you failed to tear open
At the other end
At the other end of the telescope
