Song lyrics
Shall we agree that that just this once
I'm gonna change my life
Until it's just as tiny or
Important as you like

And in time we won't even recall that we spoke
Words that turned out to be as big as smoke
A smoke that disappears in the air
There's always something that smoldering somewhere

I know it don't make a difference to you
But oh it so made a difference to me
You'll see me off in the distance I hope
At the other end
At the other end of the telescope

You're half naked ambition and
You're half out of your wits
And several tiny fractions that
This portrait still omits

And it's so hard to pick the receiver up when I call
I never knew that you could be so small
The answer was under your nose
But the question never arose

I know it don't make a difference to you
But oh it so made a difference to me
You'll see me off in the distance I hope
At the other end
At the other end of the telescope

Lie down baby now don't say a word
There there baby your vision is blurred your
Head is so sore from all of that thinking
I don't want to hurt you now
But I think you're shrinking

The promise of indulgence in my confidential voice
Approached immortal danger but you'll never know how close
Then down the hall I overheard such a heavenly choir
It interrupted my evil designs
One day your head is up in the clouds
The next day you're down with the sweet Adelines

I know it don't make a difference to you
But oh it so made a difference to me
'Cause late in the evening as I sit here moping
With a bamboo needle and a shellac of Chopin
And that cast-iron heart that you failed to
Tear open

At the other end
At the other end of the telescope
