any place is better than here
the garden's been dead for about a year
you've still got time to get out of here alive
so you'll save some money, but your uncle's car
pack your bags and your black guitar
like a kerouac book
you live it line by line

you used to dream of flying
but we don't dream no more
there's got to be a place for you
beyond this grocery store

and i said
hey, you're ready to go like a firecracker
hey, you're knocking it down like a heart attack and
hey, do you think of me when you start to crack
hey, old saybrook's calling me
but i ain't never going back

you broke her heart for a girl named beth
you tried to play it cool but you were scared to death
i guess the choice was yours, you're on your own
so you wrote some songs and you dressed in black
took a year off of school, never went back
i guess we both know you left long ago
but i don't know...
