Haunted Episodes - Graham Parker

    I wonder what you are thinkin'
    under the rooftops there
    pullin' tangles from your hairI
    wonder if the water you're drinkin'
    comes from a purer stream
    The one where sunlight gleams
    Things round here don't get any clearer
    Stuff that once seemed in reach is not any nearer

    I wonder if that house is still standin' or did they knock it flat
    Well that's progress that's that I wonder who was more demanding
    We were just young I guess neither would settle for less
    Still it's not a whole life story is it
    It's just a page I turned and there you were in it

    I wonder how you are farin' not sliding down a slope
    takin' the knocks I hope
    I wonder where your eyes are starin'
    Not into some emptiness into someone's I guess
    but that still won't make things any clearer
    people seem to drift apart instead of getting nearer

    I wonder what you are doin' under the evening sky
    watchin' your life go by
    I wonder if that place is in ruins and all the doors are closed
    that's just the way it goes
    I wonder what there is worth keepin' from haunted episodes
    that briefly woke us from sleepin'
