Oddities and Rarities - Sharp and Shiny

put the box on the back seat
push the others over
you're lucky that there's lots of room
in jon's new rover
take a last look around the house
i know it's upsetting
and you get the feeling there is
something you're forgetting
i am the one thing that you miss
but i'm not on your packing list

the irises of your eyes match the buildings and the skies
and the road that lies ahead, they're all the color of lead
lhe outline of your smile is like a razor or a file
sharp and shiny all the while
sharp and shiny all the while

look at jon walk around his car
checking the suspension
his impatience is just
adding to our tension
but he is right, you should've left
quite a long time ago
so do up your seat belt
and wind down the window

the irises of your eyes match the buildings and the skies
and the road that lies ahead, they're all the color of lead
the outline of your smile is like a razor or a file
sharp and shiny all the while
sharp and shiny all the while
like a razor or a file
sharp and shiny as your smile
