lyrics

I look back on the times
That you used to drive
An extra 15 minutes out of your way
And in the passenger's seat
I listened to you repeat
A story that you told me
The other day
And when you realized
You looked at me
You rolled your eyes
You said you're running outta stories to tell
I looked back and I smiled
The ride was less than a mile
I leaned back in my seat and I fell
I fell I fell

See that letter you gave me is all that I got
Left of you heart is blue but my eyes are bloodshot
Red like the sunset or maybe your name
Our meeting was kismet or so we proclaimed
At the end of those eight weeks, fifty-six days
It seems like lately I've lived in ash trays
I pour one more before I fall asleep
On my floor my soul you keep

Cat-eyed lady
You're driving me crazy
Cat-eyed lady
You're gonna kill me

I wish you'd just
Give me the time of day
I've got money to spend
I've got words that I could say
So just give me a chance
It could all go away
This happenstance doesn't happen every day

The weight
Lifts from my shoulders
As the seasons
They grow colder
You were the first thing on my mind
But the last thing I expected to find
In this world of the suit and the tie
So I sing to myself that this isn't the place
Or the time
The time
