I'll pick you up after night school Make sure to come running from across that street Your hair looks nice, your lips are sweet Let all my boys say I'm a fool You will soon be bored with me This thing will be reduced to tears There ain't no way - no how they're gonna ever turn us around Not a clue what's up the road Visors down and radio playing We'll learn to drive along the way Big city's always on the go First it jumps on the gas Then it hits the brakes It's easily rubbed the wrong way There ain't no way - no how they're gonna ever turn us around We're gonna make it to New York City Before they tear it down We're gonna make it to New York City Before they tear it down Ain't no turning round, ain't no turning us back Ain't no turning round, we couldn't afford the gas - anyhow I need to stop chewing my finger nails The girl I'm with she ain't the worrying kind Look at them eyes, they are always smiling Traffic round here is a disgrace You just rest your little head upon my thigh I'll wake you soon as we arrive There ain't no way - no how they're gonna ever turn us around We're gonna make it to New York City Before they tear it down We're gonna make it to New York City Before they tear it down

I dreamt I climbed a tree last night Not even from its highest branch could I see into your mind I thought I saw you gesturing for me to come inside On closer look you had moved out of sight You weren't waving me in, you were waving goodbye I walked out into this garden full of weeds I saw men as big as houses, they fell down at your feet The closer to the honey, the closer to the bees A dark shape was hiding in the trees I'll be goddamned if he's taking you from me I dreamt I had nowhere I belonged I tried my key on every lock, until it finally broke I ain't a man of learning, but there's one thing that I know Come hell or high water I'm taking you home Now set that bottle down and climb out on this song

She's all kinds of pretty, right now she's all kinds of mad Leave it to my cowards lips, to mess up this thing we have I know I ain't much of a gift, she'll scramble to make things alright She don't ask for ribbons or bows, just a standup guy Love don't make a peep, when it's stepped on But trust and faith - they sigh but once, then they're gone I can turn away anything, if it don't include a pretty girl's smile I need to learn to turn on my heels and be a standup guy See my mouth is a lion's, but my heart is a thief's What if she finds the truth about me?

It's been thirtyfive years today, guess that's still too soon to tell If we ever even really had a shot, or just made fools of ourselves Not a day goes by I don't think of how it felt (just to hold you) Claudia, are we ever gonna say farewell? I bet you're wondering how I'm doing, wondering where I've gone I bet you're thinking you could still have, if you could just get me alone I coulda kept that to myself, baby when was I that strong? Had I been a guy about it I wouldn't have had to write this song Out of all the ones that got away - You shoulda got the farthest Out of all the ones I had to let go off - You sure let go the hardest Claudia I love you, but Claudia I hate you! Come out to see me, in your new dress tonight Paint your whore lips, paint your whore eyes Act like you can make it work for me, we both know that's a lie Claudia, when you gonna let me have my goodbye? Out of all the ones that got away - You shoulda got the farthest Out of all the ones I had to let go off - You sure let go the hardest Claudia I love you, but Claudia I hate you! Am I a cruel cruel fool of a man, to poke at where it hurts? With my sentimental songs and my misrepresentation of the truth The way I'll change your name, write an album with lies of your youth How would I feel, if the shoe was on the other foot? Claudia, I kinda love you so I don't think i would care that much Yeah Claudia, I still love you
