lyrics

It's been so long since we've had words, I don't know where to call
This place has all the charm of paintings on a motel wall
Checkout time has come and I'm still struggling to move
And then the day is over and I don't know what to do

Maybe if I gave away my stuff
I could start again with just enough
A suitcase full of better plans
You would understand

Start the record over now, I haven't learned a thing
Find me in the place where every finger wears a ring
You come to me in dreams where you and I are still in love
You're just about to tell me where you are, then I wake up

Maybe if I gave away my stuff
I could start again with just enough
A suitcase full of better plans

You're the only reason why I put up with this town
It makes no sense to stay here now that you are not around
I shake the ashes of the last bridge from my hand
Put the anguish in a language you would understand

Maybe if I gave away my stuff
I could start again with just enough
A suitcase full of better plans
