the arrangement lyrics – joni mitchell

you could have been more
than a name on the door
on the thirty-third floor in the air
more than a credit card
swimming pool in the backyard

while you still have the time
you could get away and find
a better life, you know the grind is so ungrateful
racing cars, whisky bars
no one cares who you really are
you’re the keeper of the cards
yes i know it gets hard
keeping the wheels turning
and the wife she keeps the keys
she is so pleased to be
a part of the arrangement

you could have been more
than a name on the door
on the thirty-third floor in the air
more than a consumer
lying in some room trying to die
more than a credit card
swimming pool in the backyard
you could have been more than a name on the door
you could have been more than a name on the door
you could have been more
you could have been more
you could have been more
