Your naked body
is pressed against mine.
There is no passion here
nothing to complicate.
I know that we’re broken
that’s no revelation
but at least we’ve opened
And so we’ll sink into the water going by.
We burned all our idols
with our ships at the shoreline.
We’d be headed to closure
if we actually cared enough to change.
But we’re cynical.
That if we build a bridge
eventually we’d just burn it down
And sink into the water going by.

you’re headed back to cali-forn-i-a
back to where you’ve been headed
and where you’ll happily stay
you’ve always been so good at tellin’ lies
it comes so easily when you try
with those tears in your eyes
you always thought that it was boring
well now its you who’s been ignoring the signs
storms in the western skies
so open you eyes
you aren’t foolin anyone
you look like a child in disguise
like a wolf when you cry

Gone for a reason but won’t stay gone
headed for somewhere but won’t stay long,
back in town or back in time
nothing’s changin’ but nothing’s the same,
heroes can still lose and some times losers win
but in the end it’s only betting men who cash in,
Headed westward towards escape
chasin’ the sun before it can sink,
I wish I could say I get a little closer each day
but I can’t ride the sun any more than I can stay.
They say there’s a reason for everything
but you can never understand it,
so when it goes down just laugh like you planned it.
There’s never an ending come too soon
and never a beginning starts too late,
what there is
is a middle you didn’t anticipate
and a whole bunch of reasons why you did or didn’t wait.
Can there be a consequence you didn’t deserve
if there’s still lessons you have yet to learn?
