Lyrics

[Verse 1] Well, I'm accustomed to a smooth ride Or maybe I'm a dog who's lost its bite I don't expect to be treated like a fool no more I don't expect to sleep through the night Some people say a lie's a lie's a lie But I say why, why deny the obvious child? Why deny the obvious child? [Verse 2] And in remembering a road sign I am remembering a girl when I was young And we said these songs are true, these days are ours These tears are free and hey The cross is in the ballpark The cross is in the ballpark [Chorus] We had a lot of fun, had a lot of money We had a little son and we thought we'd call him Sonny Sonny gets married and moves away Sonny has a baby and bills to pay Sonny gets sunnier day by day by day by day [Verse 3] Well, I've been waking up at sunrise I've been following the light across my room I watch the night receive the room of my day Some people say the sky is just the sky But I say why deny the obvious child? Why deny the obvious child? [Bridge] Sonny sits by his window and thinks to himself How it's strange that some rooms are like cages Sonny's yearbook from high school is down from the shelf And he idly thumbs through the pages Some have died, some have fled from themselves Or struggled from here to get there Sonny wanders beyond his interior walls Runs his hand through his thinning brown hair [Verse 4] Well I'm accustomed to a smoother ride Or maybe I'm a dog that's lost his bite I don't expect to be treated like a fool no more I don't expect to sleep the night Some people say a lie is just a lie But I say the cross is in the ballpark Why deny the obvious child?
