When forever finally comes to town

Not sure I wanna be around

When it stands outside to

Knock upon my door

I’ll hide inside

Not make a sound

Turn out the lights

Get on the ground

Lay in the quiet

Shadow of the floor

And if forever’s not deterred

No worry, I’ll plan for the worst

I’ll wait it out

I’ll stock up every shelf

I’ll let forever

Knock all day

And hope it finally

Goes away

“Don’t answer”s what

I’ll sit and tell myself

And if forever starts to pound

Hard on the door to knock it down

I’ll stack the furniture

Up high and deep

I’ll nail some boards

Ill brace, I’ll wedge

I’ll cross my heart

I’ll make a pledge!

That, “While forever’s there

I’ll never sleep”

For in the end I know I’ll win

I’ll never let forever in

Nor ever let it have

Its way with me

And I’ll not step

Outside again

Yes, can’t you see

I’m bound to win

Forever locked inside…

Is where I’ll be
