I'll tell you at street intersections
cause they give you a place to go
meanings to lines on maps
tell you how you're gonna get home.
Now I'm back in the Mid-West
where everything is familiar and sincere.
Everything's external and nothing just happens to you here,
in between coasts.

Chorus:
Lookin' for what it was you lost on second street
forgot what it was on Washington
and you let it go, you let it go,
you let it go, and you jumped in that pool undone
we're still in town, isn't that fun, yeah isn't that fun?

now i know there's been some hard times
and i don't mean you and me
you're over believing, back to forgetting
and you're turning on tv
what you see just makes you know
and the headlines all become a blur
and the years and lives scroll by the bottom of that screen like desert sand
and we're entrenched in a mess
embedded in our beds, sleepin' in
what i wouldn't give to wanna live like i was ten

Chorus Once More

    I'll tell you in street intersections
    'Cause they give you a place to go
    Give meanings to lines on maps
    And tell you how you're gonna to get home
    Now I'm back here in the Midwest
    Where everything's familiar and sincere
    And everything's external
    Nothing just happened to you here
    In between coasts

    Looking for what it was you lost on 2nd street
    Forgot what it was on Washington
    And you let it go, you let it go, you let it go
    Because you know that map book's long gone
    We're still in town, now isn't that fun?
    Yeah, isn't that fun?

    Now I know there's been some hard times
    And I don't mean you and me
    You're over believing', back to forgettin'
    And you're turning on TV
    And what you see just makes you numb
    And the headlines all become a blur
    And the years and the lies scroll by
    n the bottom of that screen, like desert sand
    And we're entrenched in a mess
    Embedded in our beds, sleepin' in
    What I wouldn't give to want to live like I once did

    Looking for what you lost on 2nd street
    Starin' through the windows of my friends
    And I can see all their loveliness
    Imagining all the clocks ticking and
    Big black clouds over their heads
    And we're waitin' for the hesitation to end

    This town is way too small
    To ever need the bus
    So meet me at the pool
    That they keep unlocked all night
    For us

    Song MeaningI think this is about going home and figuring it isn't that bad. And re-finding home.
