Lainie's just as lonely as I am
She sits on the west coast,
flipping through maps of Arizona
She says she's lookin' to leave, man
Well that sounds like a good plan,
if she could ever make it to Sedona

Finally I'm starting to see
what everyone's been tryin' to tell me

Maybe I'm just luckier than I should be
for a young guy
Who's still somewhat afraid of getting older
Hoping for your word in the late night
A lover who just might,
keep me from feeling any colder

Finally I'm starting to see
what everyone's been trying to tell me

A letter, says I'm leaving
I got a postcard from the road and it's missing my feet
I'm trying, to believe in,
anything that's gonna bring you home

Baby, you can't blame me for looking
A second passion in cooking
Well I've been more sincere but who gives a damn
I hope you know that I'm trying
And for the days I've been crying
You've been making it up even better than
I thought you would and I'm growing that's good
And it's not where I should be
but don't hold it against me

A letter, says I'm leaving
I got a postcard from the road and it's missing my feet
I'm trying, to believe in,
anything that's gonna bring you home to me
A letter, says dear Lainie, I'm sorry for the delay
I've been stuck in the snow
Be better, my dear lady, cause come the first sign of
spring I'll be coming home
(x2)

    Song MeaningJoe said this in a blog post, once,

    "Lainie is a friend of mine who lives in Southern California. We dated for a while, and she was my muse. I wrote those songs (and others) prior to/during our dating relationship."
