THE WEEKEND WAS A DISASTER ALL OUR DREAMS BEGAN TO COME LOOSE BEHIND HARD SHUT EYES CRUELTY LENT A GENTLE HAND AND THE WORST CAME TRUE FOR A DAY AND A HALF UNTIL SHE SAID, "BABY...LET'S MAKE IT, JUST FOR A LAUGH." AMERICAN GRAFFITI ON THE RIVERBED FLOWING NORTH THE VOLUNTEERS POOLED IN HER MOUTH AS SHE SAID WORDS I KNEW SHE NEVER WANTED TO SAY "BEST OF LOVE, DON'T YOU LET ME STAND IN YOUR WAY." ALL THAT WE HAVE LEFT BEHIND WILL FOLLOW THROUGH YOUR HEART AND MINE RIGHT ON UNTIL THE MOMENT WE DIE TEARS OF JOY WERE DRYING SHE BEGAN TO SHOUT I DON'T HAVE THE GUTS TO LEAVE YOU AND LIVE MY LIFE WITHOUT SOMEONE ELSE TO TAKE THE BLAME WHEN I FALL SHORT IT WOULDN'T BE THE SAME ALL THAT WE HAVE LEFT BEHIND... DRIVING SLOW THE HEAT ON LOW THE WINDOWS HIGH IT'S A NIGHT ON THE TOWN THE AM COMES THE BACKSEAT HUMS YOU LOOK OVER THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG AND EVERYBODY'S KNOWN IT FOR SO LONG THE WEEKEND DREAM IS OVER SO LET OUR TERRORS START WE'LL GO BACK TO THE WAY WE WERE AND THE WAYS I'VE FOUND TO BREAK YOUR HEART AND THE WORST PART IS THAT WE BOTH WILL STAY COULD IT BE, BABY, THAT WE LIKE IT THIS WAY?

FLYING HOME TO SEE A FRIEND OF MINE SOON WE'LL START OUR SLOW DECLINE I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'LL WANNA DO I CAN'T WAIT JUST TO BE WITH YOU IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK IN OUR HOMETOWN YOU PICK ME UP WITH THE TOP ROLLED DOWN RIDING THROUGH THIS SUMMER NIGHT WILL I KNOW IF THE MOMENT'S RIGHT I CAN'T TELL IF YOU WANT ME TO ASK YOU HOW YOU MADE IT THROUGH IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU'RE DOING WELL OR AM I WRONG AGAIN? I JUST CAN'T TELL ALL I WANT IS FOR YOU TO KNOW THAT I WAS WRONG BUT I HAD TO GO DO YOU THINK THEY TOOK MY SOUL AWAY?

SOMETIMES I REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS LIKE BEFORE OUR SHIP STARTED SINKING UNDERCOVER COPS AT THE PICTURE SHOW THEY COULD TELL WHAT WE'D BEEN DRINKING HOW WOULD I KNOW AND WHY SHOULD I CARE IF THIS JUST AN AMERICAN TRADE AFFAIR? FROM THE START I HAD MY DOUBTS BUT I FIGURED I WOULD JUST LET THEM GO THIS GREAT STATE HAS SOLD YOU OUT NOW YOU DO WHAT YOU'RE TOLD ON THE PAYROLL HOW WOULD I KNOW AND WHY WOULD I CARE IF THIS IS JUST AN AMERICAN TRADE AFFAIR? OCEAN FRONT FUTURES IN PASADENA WITH THE HOPES THIS TOWN WILL KEEP ON SINKING UNDER COVER COPS AT THE GOVERNOR'S BALL WHO COULD TELL WHAT THEY WERE THINKING HOW WOULD I KNOW AND WHY SHOULD I CARE IF THIS IS JUST AN AMERICAN TRADE AFFAIR?

OFFENDING HER FAMILY'S BAPTIST BELIEF DRESSED IN WHITE LINEN, HER CHILDHOOD SHEETS WHO'S UP FROM MIAMI? THE SERVICE WAS WELL LIT THEIR DAUGHTER'S SO LOVELY SHE'S GIVING ME TIME PRETENDING THE FUNERAL WAS NOT REAL SEQUESTERED IN A BEDROOM TRYING TO STEEL HIS NERVES WITH POISON AND AN OLD TV HER BROTHER'S SO LONELY HE'S GIVING ME CHILLS DECATUR, GEORGIA USED TO BE YOUR HOME NOW IT'S A WASTELAND A LITTLE LIKE ROME
