i've come to meet you in Moscow, Idaho
i'll drive down to you if you talk specifically to pro-bo
to hear you say jessica when you're in Philadelphia
and i' would love to be courted long distance from Portland


i think it would be great
if you lived in a different state
otherwise i am to busy i'm always in a rush
and theres not enough room for all my stuff

i like boys from Tennessee
and they sure now how to make them in Ypsilanti
i'm going to bring a little brianna to you in indiana
i'll be wishin' i was kissin' with you in Michigan

i used to think it was great
when i got to look forward to seeing your face
but now that we occupy the same space
i just cant get excited in the same way

the further away the fuzzier your face
the harder to make a less desirable trace
when i'm looking at you through a telescopic lens
thats when its easier for me to use my imagination
but when i'm looking at you through a microscopic lens
thats when it harder for me to pretend

but i still think it would be great
if you lived in a different state
for thats the only way we can remain
in this lovey dovey romantic phase
without the drag of the everyday

i'm sorry that i liked you better
when i only knew you through your letters
take it from me the best way to be
is fickle and fackles and wishy and washy

let me tell you the best thing to do
when you live in a city (Milwaukee)
is find yourself a hottie
and when you realize you want more then just a smooch
pack up your bags and move to Minneapolis or Duluth
