Ageratum and a Sachem Skipper

So excuse me for forgetting,
But these things I do,
You see, I've forgotten,
If they're green or they're blue,
Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean,
Yours are the sweetest eyes, I've ever seen.

Below the Bridge

I wonder if Jack and Diane ever made it,
After the drums and the guitars all faded,
Was the best they could do good enough,
or did the heartland just swallow'em up.

Jack and Diane painted a picture of life in my dreams,
Suddenly this crazy world made more sense to me.
Well, I heard it today and I couldn't help but sing along,
'Cause everytime I hear that song...

Purple Along the Spring

I got patches, on my patches,
On my old blue jeans,
Well they used to be blue,
When they used to be new,
When they used to be clean.
