when everything we felt failed
and some music soft in distant sails
but it don't sound like it did before
then i know i'm left with nothing more
than my own soul
when pretty pictures face back
but your coats aren't hanging on the rack
and blue water turns to
a place that i can't get to
a place that i can't

Freezing Monday morning
She is waiting for her train to come
I brush past her, smell her perfume
Watch her hair move as she turns to go
She doesn't know I exist
I'm gonna keep it like this
I'm not gonna take any risks this time

The daughter of the hum of the highway
She's curling up like smoke

Well, time has a way of throwing it all in your face
The past, she is haunted, the future is laced
Heartbreak, ya know, drives a big black car
Swear I was in the back seat, just minding my own

We come from a distant past that we've forgotten
And now we look up and aspire to the stars
We are the mystery that even we can't decipher
The mystery of man

Sunday afternoon we go up to John's with a lot of beer in time to watch the Simpsons.
It was a really good episode about love always ending in tragedy except, of course, for Marge and Homer.
It was quite moving at the end and to tell you the truth my eyes were a bit damp.
Then we watched these young girls in swimsuits have a water fight in the street. "Taping this, aye?"
We went up to the pub about ten. It was busy for a Sunday night, lots of people we know,
including my first ever girlfriend who I still find very attractive, quite frankly, but I didn't really speak to her.
She's probably still a bitch, anyway. Her friend Gillian was there, I had a chat with her, she was still quite pleasant.
At the same time I watched Malcolm make some terrible attempt to try and chat up a girl we know called Jo.
He made some remark about her skirt that was barely there the previous night or something.
I couldn't sleep again that night, thanks to some seriously disturbing nightmares...
Matthew says I should cut down on the cheese.

All the times that I've cried
Keeping all the things I knew inside
It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it
If they were right I'd agree
But it's them they know, not me
Now there's a way
And I know that I have to go away
I know I have to go

The years blurred until I barely recognised my own face
Years I spent trying the same way and living in the same place

I started having dreams of the desert so real they haunted me
Always sunny and never gray no noise just wind and sage

I began taking vacation days and driving out as far as I could
The people around me said I drew away that a ghost I became

Down in Utah in the middle of the day I knew I could never go back
At a New Mexico gas station a kid was talking to me
I could hear what he said no words came from me
Until he finally walked away

I'm heading farther, heading farther now,
I'm heading farther out and away.

Is it my maker?
Am I the breaker?
Has it come too soon?
Am I to follow?
Where life seems hallowed
By some impending doom

And you dance into the shadow of a black poplar tree
And I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
