Reconstruction Site – The Weakerthans


This song's been going through my head a lot since Pace was born:


And I'm broke, like a bad joke


Somebody's uncle told at a wedding reception in 1972


Where a little boy under a table with cake in his hair


Stared at the grown-up feet as they danced and swayed


And his father laughed and talked on the long ride home


And his mother laughed and talked on the long ride home


And he thought about how everyone dies someday


And when tomorrow gets here, where will yesterday be


And fell asleep in his brand new winter coat
