A poet lied to me
And I took it as fact
But it's not fair to blame
Jack Kerouac

Could have traded it all in
For someplace to get lost
I burned my bridges
And I swam across

I really never meant to be gone so long
And then when I got back
I got back to find you gone

Now I've seen the road
And it's no more real
Than a walk across
The kitchen floor

But it's something I can't shake
And I can't forget
Like a smoker needs
A morning cigarette

I really never meant to be gone so long
And then when I got back
I got back to find you gone

From the airport I
Took a yellow cab
There was a soft grey rain
As it drove me back

And your flight sets you down
Across the seas
Looks like we've both
Got the same disease

I really never meant to be gone so long
And then when I got back
I got back to find you gone

Find a pretty hour now to stay still long
And I reckon when you get back
You get back to find me gone
