lyrics

The Summer they Turned off my Water

I had a dream last night I touched your sweater
And felt your body there beneath my fingers
And you smiled the way you did
The summer they turned off my water
and you invited me over
To your hotel room Beneath the quarter moon

But I am not looking back
‘Cause I’ve seen the consequence
Of gravitating to the dark side of you
And how easily you go
And how perfectly you stay away

Your silence falls always the same
I feel your hand slip from mine from a thousand miles away
And I recall your promises
I let them go a little slower as I get a little older
There’s nothing to say to keep you from going astray

But I do want you so
I want you to know
That the pictures in my mind
Replay from time to time
And that little house we built
Belongs to someone else

But I am not looking back
‘Cause I’ve seen the consequence
Of gravitating to the dark side of you
And how easily you go
And how perfectly you stay away

I had a dream last night I touched your sweater
And felt your body there beneath my fingers
And you smiled
