lyrics

I watch the lights going down
Through the blinds of your bedroom window
I watch you dash from your house
Through the night in a nervous tip toe
I watch your silhouette bounce
In the dark like a dream calypso
You’re sitting next to me now
In the car I say we shouldn’t go
You say “Save it for San Francisco”

I watch the headlights pass South
As your hair flutters in the wind’s blow
I watch the taillights northbound
As we fly through the East Bay zip codes
I watch the cosmos surround
As the stars and my insides implode
You’re spinning round and around
As I dizzy with your vertigo
And I know that I got your syndrome

Highway nights now turn to
Asphalt days I turn through
My old pages search to
Find your name
My hypothetical dream girl
All that I couldn’t get
My hypothetical dream girl
Once but never again

From all your mother disallowed
To all your father disavowed
To nights spent punching drywall til your wrist broke
From all the photographs we hung
To all the times we near succumbed
But right then pulled away when we got this close
I always knew we’d go to flames
But now I’m burning at your stake

Highway nights now turn to
Asphalt days I turn through
My old pages search to
Find your name
My hypothetical dream girl
All that I couldn’t get
My hypothetical dream girl
Once but never again

I say “Give me the truth I want nothing but it
Give me a reason I should be convinced
To chase down with you these fever dreams”
You say another lie so easy to swallow
I’ll recognize but wait til tomorrow
And feign for tonight that I believe
You say “please stay for tonight to lie with me”
