father's day
lyrics by Penelope Houston/ music by P. Houston and Mel Peppas
The smiling ponies ride the shiny Ferris wheel
A smiling marching band can crush the way I feel
I know the sun come up to light another day
I can't believe in what I can't explain
We live in a house of cards
painted by the wind
paper and bits of card
tumble in the rain
Baby, I know it's hard
to build it back again
Baby knows it's so hard

I wait for Father's Day to supplicate my joy
Green tea and ice cream just like every girl and boy
And then the sun go down forsaking me again
I can't remember why I feel no pain

We live in a house of cards
scattered by the wind
paper and bits of card
tumble in the rain
Baby, I know it's hard
to build it back again
Baby knows it's so hard

Baby waits
Baby knows
Baby waits, Baby waits for Father's Day
In the shadow of his sin
living in the shadow of his smile
in the shadow of his smile
living in the shadow of his smile
living in the shadow of his smile
in the shadow of his smile
