Weather Reports - Bright Eyes

Well I left my baby
For a dream as lovely
For a love that's only in books I've read

Then I hit the city
Spent all my money
I just left my whole life in a taxicab

Cause it's just a memory
I can love completely
When you're really with me I'm indifferent

But I tried to get my head clear
It's too full of ideas
That I haven't thought of yet

And the time clocks keep waving their hands
Doin all that they can
To get our attention
But the days fly away down a clean interstate
I'm staring drunk at a map

So I let my hair down for the second time now
For the final time now
I had my fun

But there's no returning from the places we've been
Just repeat our slogan
"Never again"

So you split
Said you had to get out
Headed back to the south
Where everything's gentler

But i stay for a couple weeks more
all the weather reports say there will be snow for sure
but the storm moved away to a neighboring state
I started the car
