I could come from any direction that I wanted to
But I won’t tell you lies about a world that I almost knew
To sell my songs to you
And I see you early in the morning
Taking bottles back after your party
Someone’s passed out in the back of your Cadillac
And driving off so fast
And they’ll ask, “Where are you going?”
You’ll say, “I don’t know, but I’ve got to get there.”
Lights shine through the snow
And you’ll hear voices laughing
“You’ll be back here.”
“You’ll come back here.”
“Don’t think that you won’t.”
So when you see me on the corner
Doing yo-yo tricks for all the new children
They’ll be the same ones I had in ’96
I’ve got nothing new
But in the end like the beginning
There is trust and sound and no convolutions
If your head hurts while you’re singing
Take a look around
Get back in your shiny car
And tell yourself again
About how your engine is faster than my heart.
