lyrics

Darker yellow on a brighter blue
makes me think of you,
it's on those old streets
and in every tree,
partly vanished, but still easy to feel.
This lingering longing floating in the breeze
a little less intense than I thought it would be
but everything's changing.

And all those clocks they are ticking backwards again.
And I walk and wonder why I love this place
but can only stay for a couple days

Before I feel the urge to leave again
and get on a westbound train
with a one-way ticket
but there's still some change left in my pocket,
enough to make it back home.

Now train tracks battle static thoughts,
I get a little lost -
lost in those old streets
where we used to meet
and drink ourselves to life every Friday night.
This lingering longing is just a part of me,
and will forever be
even though days rattle past
and everything's changing.

And now sleep will guide me into a brighter tomorrow.

Until I feel the urge to leave again
and get on a westbound train
with a one-way ticket
but there's still some change left in my pocket.

And when we meet again,
we'll have a cigarette.
And you'll tell your fiction,
and I'll listen and nod with distant affection.
