Mrs. says "Can you please be quiet"
I didn't think she knew I was awake
This time I didn't care I took the train out
watching all the lights half past midnight
and I didn't think about you

Do you think I should start on this line
There are lots of things I could tell you
but I don't think it's the time
You're scraping words off what we said
I don't remember so it's fine

Mrs. says "Can you please stop laughing?
Some of us have to work for a living"
This time it was all wrong I took my feet out
and walking past your door I felt the same pull
and I thought about you

Time taps out slowly
Do I see you in dreams?
Oh yeah, I think so

This could be one now
I don't know, I don't know
It doesn't seem real
and neither do you
Mrs. says "Can you please be quiet?"

Looking at the map
and tracing all the lines
I saw you in Detroit
I saw you in Des Moines
Looking at the map
and tracing all the lines
I can think about the time
and how to get it back
and how to get you back

Oh now it's gone past an hour
and I know I should probably
be asleep or something healthy
something good for me

Looking at the map
and tracing all the lines
on how to get to you
and how to get back
