Walking by - Something Corporate

You grand dad left home for the circus
He was young just like me
With hope to explore
He married a girl in Virginia
She could swing the trapeze
They could sleep on the floor
Mother was born in December
One sunny day
That winter gave up
The warm summer eyes
That flicker like fireflies
She stared at the world
So why do you leave these stories unfinished?
My Cheshire cat doorstop with tears in your eyes
And why do you look when you?ve already found it
And what did you find that would leave you walkin by?

She was raised in a New England village
And she moved to LA
With a Firefly stare
And you loved sunset strip when it sparkled
You grew up and you sparkled but why don?t you care?

And why do you leave these stories unfinished?
My Cheshire cat doorstop with tears in your eyes
And why do you look when you?ve already found me
And what did you find that would leave you walkin by?

And these nights I get high just from breathin
And I lie here with you
I?m sure that I?m real like that
Like that firework over the freeway
I could stay here all day
But that?s not how you feel

So why do you leave these questions unanswered?
The circus awaits but you?re already gone
My Cheshire cat doorstop, with fear in your smile
What makes it so easy for you to be walkin by?

What did I do that you can?t seem to want me
And why do we lie here an whisper good-byes
And where can I go that your pictures won?t haunt me
What makes it so easy for you to be walkin by?
Walkin by
Walkin by
