cellophane, tear off the wrappings & what remains?
beneath the trappings have we really gained the dreams we’re shopping for?
cellophane, light plays on the packaging,
we’re led astray by the strangest things, still left wanting more
+++ I wanna be there when it all breaks down,
+++ & I wanna be there when they wear it out,
+++ I wanna be there when it falls apart,
+++ two broken hearts away..

‘cause after all nothing shines like the catalog,
Christmastime since the early fall, but now it’s almost spring,
+++ I’m gonna be there when the best plans fail,
+++ & I’m gonna be there at your fire sale,
+++ I’m gonna be there when it’s time to bail,
+++ with beauty, true and plain..

cellophane, light plays on the packaging,
we’re led astray by the same old things, still left wanting more…
