lyrics

Green carpet, yellow sheets
Bedspread of orange and brown
Dresser, who’s using a dresser here
Almost feels like a putdown

2 glasses next to the sink
With covers that say they are clean
Map, there’s a map, it’s attached to the door
Tells how we should flee, how we should flee

You wouldn’t know it’s a holiday
Outside, the highway doesn’t change
This isn’t a place to live a second life
Everybody knows your name
in this hotel surrounded by parking lots
Feels like we can say

if things don’t get any better
One night, two of us together

Feels right
Some days I cannot breathe
Some days
I get by just by thinking
Of you, the mailman’s daughter
Of you, the Queen of Decatur

The Rolling Stones once passed beneath
That big white neon sign
What do you think Mick Jagger would do
With a bucket, a bucket of ice

Civilization ended before this carpet was ever stained
I never had anything before you, before you
I felt less afraid, I felt less afraid

You wouldn’t know it’s a holiday
Outside, the highway doesn’t change
This isn’t a place to live a second life
Everybody knows your name
in this hotel surrounded by parking lots
Feels like we can say

If things don’t get any better
One night, the two of us together

Feels right
Some days I cannot breathe
Some days
I get by just by thinking
Of you, the mailman’s daughter
Of you, the Queen of Decatur

Queen of Decatur
Queen of Decatur
Queen of Decatur
Queen of Decatur

Gideon’s Bible, king-size bed
Snow falling on a green roof
We’re on the second floor
But I still smell the pool

The dreams I have are of things
My parents told me are true
The dreams I have are of things
My parents believe are true

And I wish I could believe them
They didn’t know the ending
I wish I could believe them
They didn’t know the ending
The Queen of Decatur

You wouldn’t know it’s a holiday outside
The Queen of Decatur
You wouldn’t know it’s a holiday outside
The Queen of Decatur
You wouldn’t know it’s a holiday outside
The Queen of Decatur
You wouldn’t know it’s a holiday outside
The Queen of Decatur

You wouldn’t know it’s a holiday outside
You wouldn’t know it’s a holiday outside
You wouldn’t know, you wouldn’t know
You wouldn’t know, you wouldn’t know

You wouldn’t know, you wouldn’t know
Know

The Queen of Decatur
The Queen of Decatur
The Queen of Decatur
The Queen of Decatur

The Queen of Decatur
The Queen of Decatur
The Queen of Decatur
The Queen of Decatur
