There's no explanation to this wild situation
Thought you were gone, left me to rot
Since then I have a habit I do with elation
I stand by the door more often than not
And now you've just appeared with a smile
Come inside the house the table's set just for two and
Let's play a game, I'll say your name
While you look at the man on the old Polaroid frame.

There will be no witness to all these circumstances
I am a fraud, he is away
I found the perfect house it was just happenstances
The door was unlocked, I don't have the key
And you have greeted me with a smile
Your generosity is putting me in great shame
I'll play the game, say it's my name
Though I am not the man in that old Polaroid frame.
