packing blankets lyrics – eels

today is a lovely day to run
start up the car with the sun

packin’ blankets and dirty sheets
a roomful of dust and a broom to sweep up
all the troubles you and i have seen

cross when the drawbridge light is green
don’t look back to that messed-up scene

packin’ blankets and dirty sheets
a roomful of dust and a broom to sweep up
all the troubles you and i have seen

and all our troubles will be gone
blowin’ out over that bridge
floatin’ up into the sky
makin’ the storm clouds cry

put out that smoke and breath some air
get a new name and cut your hair

packin’ blankets and dirty sheets
a roomful of dust and a broom to sweep up
all the troubles you and i have seen
