she left again just yesterday

said this time it’s gonna be longer

and i know better than to ask

if i can go with her.

 

this city just isn’t for us

she told me one night

i want to be back in that old town

where we couldn’t see the city light.

 

she doesn’t ask me to come along

and i don’t ever ask her to stay

because together we only hurt

so maybe it is better this way.
