I guess I should have stopped
When all the lights turned red
And the radio kept playing
When the stereo was dead
I guess I should’ve known
That photographs meant more
Than what we let us tell ourselves,
Than what they did before

And I guess I have to say
Wait a minute
This is just beginning
The west coast can take it
Yeah, it’s overrated

So book another flight
And draw a map to see
How far your dashed and dotted lines
Are from Tennessee
And make another call
And talk until we sleep
I know your clock is saying one
But here’s it’s screaming three

And I guess I have to say
Wait a minute
This is just beginning
The west coast can take it
Yeah, it’s overrated

Wait, I’ll find another way
I’ll cross another state
I’ll find a better way
We’ll start another day

    General Commentno, i don't believe this is Jason Schwartzman's, he did write "the west coast" but this isn't the same one... as none of the lyrics are the same...
