Lyrics

i find myself lost for the first time
all of the moments i had to myself are now spent picturing you
but i am not cross, and this ain't a goodbye
i am convinced that you one day will realize the pain that you're putting me though

‘cause i worked on a farm met a girl with a charm in a stable
we laughed all the time drank our cranberry wine in a fable
her lips tasted sweet and i loved her as much as i was able
but i could not fall when i recalled

how when you and i walk down the street
the sky'd tuck itself round our heads
and all of the people we'd meet
would come to life in the story we'd set
and i just don't know when this will happen again



if you are not set intractably forward
with your cool boyfriend, your job, and your home it's a 5 hour trip if you fly
you could come live with me down here in the basement
it's cold in the winter, wet in the summer, but i know that we could get by

‘cause i went into town met a girl in a gown at a bar
she was smart, talked about art, drank her champagne, and ate caviar
we made love in the back of her stretch-cadillac, fancy car
but i could not fall when i recalled

how when you and i figured it out
that time was just space for our breath
it would tangle and spiral and soar
past the trees that all swayed round our heads
and i just don't know when this will happen again



if i could just say, i know i'm a shit head
i know it was me that took off and left you, but i was just anxious and dumb
i don't know what i learned.  i still march to the dyslexic drummer
maybe i just needed some time to myself to write all the songs that i've sung

yeah i traveled throughout this whole world lived without and within
i’ve read newspapers and books, learned how heros and crooks lose and win
i even tried me some drugs, and i still ain't found love...then again
i start to fall when i recall

you and i standing alone
with the glowing sun closing it's eyes
as we'd melt into one in the dark
and make our own mountains and skies

and my beat up guitar sounds like rain
as it pours out the soul of the world
which is filled with regrets and mistakes
and the hearts of a fellah and girl

and it all breaths in time to this song
in flashes of blistering red
it will find you wherever you are
and wrap itself round both our heads

and i just don't know when this will happen again...
