LyricsEdit

I found me in her living room
She was drunk and in a trance
She babbled off some outsized words
I never really had a chance

A mutual friend thought we'd be a nice couple
Thought we'd probably bend some pretty big spoons
Four weeks later I was dragging through the park
She said she couldn't leave too soon

I found her in my telephone
On the way to being star of the stage
She though I could make it in the clubs around there
She said Boston was the city of the age

I said I don't deal with snow that well
I think I'll stay here in the desert sand
Actresses i don't think understand musicians
Our personalities don't change overnight

I've got to try this one myself
I've got to do this my way
I'm choking in these rarified airs
I see a different highway

The future may find me in the wrong
Posing for promotional pictures
I could only stare in disbelief
When she said the scripts are scriptures

I've got to try this one myself
I've got to do this my way
I'm choking in these rarified airs
I see a different highway
