well, I don't care what people say
life is too short to hang around
so I stay so long in a place
and then move on to the next town

oh, sunset city
I've gotta see the world
don't hold me too tightly
don't whisper my name
sad-eyed baby, I'm not that kind of girl
when the dice stop rolling, there's no more to the game
when the time comes to say goodbye...

and in the morning, I'll be gone
for other towns and other lives
I'll catch the first train, bag in hand
and I won't miss you
and you won't cry

    General CommentThe perfect first song for a road trip mix cd. Very laid-back, very early-morning when you've only started out but you know you have all the time in the world.
