KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE lyrics - I Eat Dinner

KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE
"I Eat Dinner"

I eat dinner at the kitchen table
With my daughter who is thirteen
We eat leftovers with mashed potatoes
No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger's gone

I eat dinner at the kitchen table
And I wash it down with pop
I eat leftovers with mashed potatoes
No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger stops
When the hunger stops

Never thought that I'd end up this way
I who loved the sparks
Never thought my hair'd be turning to grey
It used to be so dark
So dark

No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger's gone
No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger's gone
When the hunger's gone

Never thought that I'd end up like this
I who loved the night
Never thought I'd be without a kiss
No one to turn off the light
Turn off the light

I eat dinner at the kitchen table
With my daughter who is thirteen
We eat leftovers with mashed potatoes
No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger's gone
