A Thousand Steps To Nowhere lyrics

Iris
A thousand steps

Paperman
Obviously

Iris
The jewish cemetery

Paperman
It may come in handy

Iris
Let me get him. your heart

Paperman
Stay here
A thousand steps to nowhere
That is all I see
This night is asking questions
Where and what for me
A thousand miles from henny
Who warned me from the start
I feel foolhardy, I miss sardis
Thought I was so smart

Chorus
Down is up, up is down
Thats just life in kinja town
The natives and the castaways
Thats just life for me these days

Henny
Ive had it with this weather
My skin is pale as bleach
Im heading back to kinja
And stretch out on the beach
My past is in these boxes
All clean and neatly packed
No time for sorrow, I leave tomorrow
Theres no turning back
No turning back, Im island bound
I want to turn from white to brown
Sing and dance to calypso songs
Trade in this mink for a pink sarong

Iris
I really do admire him
And what hes taking on
This island and these crazies
But I fear hell soon be gone
Cant let myself fall for him
A terrible mistake
Hes got henny, Im one too many
This time my heart could break

Chorus
A thousand steps to nowhere
That is all I see

Paperman
My heart is pounding madly

Iris
Mine too, wont let me be
A thousand reasons not to

Paperman
Strange but oh so true
Im behaving

Iris
Youre not past saving
A thing we both should do

Henny
Cause hes happy

Duet
Down is up, up is down

Henny
I understand

Duet
Thats just life in kinja town

Henny
Cause hes my man

Duet
The natives and the castaways
Thats just life for us these days

Henny
Cause hes happy

Duet
Down is up, up is down

Henny
I understand

Duet
Thats just life in kinja town

Henny
Cause hes my man

Duet
The natives and the castaways

Ensemble
Thats just life for us these days
Thats just life for us these days

Paperman
Gilbert come and prime the pump
