From the album Coming Apart At The Dreams
This is a story about avoiding divorce
So listen up; I’m teaching a crash course
It’s for those not thinking procreation
And it’s a great way around a complicated situation
Let’s start out with the proposition
That most marriages die of some serious condition
But there must be a way to defeat that system
Why don’t we marry experience and wisdom ― instead of us?
It’s a five-year deal; we put it in a contract
Five years, a secret pact; no one has to know this fact
We should get to the end totally intact
Question is, will we affirm another term?
Now I know you’re thinking this is complicated
And I’m not saying this should be appreciated ― by everyone
But what could be the harm in trying something new?
It might just be the coolest thing to do
I don’t know what the future holds, but it doesn’t hold divorce
This new kind of together might could be a powerful force
And if it turns out she doesn’t want to renew ― and I do
She can just walk away and the worst I’ll be is blue
Oh, yeah, it’s a five-year deal
