Lyrics:

I'm picking up the furniture
I didn't get last week
I'm picking up the futon
On which I never had to sleep

Looking in the mirror
I don't recognize my face
I thought I was a young man
but it's my father staring back at me

Will I make the same mistakes
A thousand times
Just to see if I'll survive?
I will count backwards from ten
Rearrange what I can change
And start over again.

I'm picking up the pieces
Of a glass I don't know how I broke
I'm picking up the butts
Of cigarettes I didn't know I smoked

I'm singing silly love songs
For a girl I never knew
I don't know why I can't admit
I write them all for you

Will I make the same mistakes
A thousand times
Just to prove that I'm alive?
I will count backwards from ten
Rearrange what I can change
And start over again

ooooh oooh oooh

I will count backwards from ten
9- 8- 7-
6- 5-4-3-2-
One more time and all
I'll take the pilgrim to the ball
And since the pilgrim likes it rough
I'll have to say enough's enough
And if the pilgrim takes a drink
I'll shake his hand and hold his eye
As that he sometimes thinks of me
Pray on guitar rosaries
So glad

I said good bye
Good bye
Good bye

Ooh. Ooooh

I have made the same mistakes
A thousand times
I'm amazed that I've survived
I will count backwards from ten
Rearrange what I can change
And start over again.
