Lyrics Soap Opera

When I'm washing dishes
I get flashes of the places I have been
They say when you're down and out
It's hard to find the strength to start again
Now we find ourselves in a place
That we have never been before
So now I'm gathering moss
Because this stone will not be rolling out the door


We're not the only ones
Who are the lonely ones
We need old things to ground us
New ideas to give us hope
Till then I'm big on running water
And I use it with a little bit of soap

Well, not knowing is the worst thing
If anything will ever be the same
There's little money coming in
And the bill collectors won't forget my name
They say the government will help me
But they cannot seem to tell me when
While we're waiting on the answers
I'm guessing that we're on our own again

We're on our own again
To the unknown again
We need old things to ground us
New ideas to give us hope
Right now I'm big on running water
And I use it with a little bit of soap
Till then I'm big on the running water
And I use it with a little bit of soap
