Everything Wears A Little Thin

Raggedy Andy and Raggedy Ann
Everybody wears a little thin
Can’t stitch it all back together again,
’cause everything wears a little thin

Apples in the autumn on a patchwork quilt
Everything wears a little thin
Time slips away with the way we’re built
Everything wears a little thin

Everything and everyone is wearing pretty thin
But hang on, darling, now hold on tight,
That’s where the light gets in

Old vinyl records and your favorite t-shirt
Everything wears a little thin
Everything is gonna take everything you’re worth
Everybody wears a little thin

Blue-jean jackets and old summer dresses
Everything wears a little thin
Two empty glasses, unimaginative passes
Everything wears a little thin

Everything and everyone was wearing pretty thin
Even looking back, baby, at your darkest nights
That’s where the light got in

Trying to remember all your very best youth
Every memory wears a little thin
Now you’re wore out done but wore out good
Everybody wears a little thin

Everything and everyone is wearing pretty thin
But hang on, darling, now hold on tight,
That’s where the light gets in

(February 2007)
