    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
