I have not been writing that many new songs
How I wish I could stay longer, how I wish I'd never gone
And you have not been writing me as often as I wish
And sometime I think I left you just to see if I'd be missed

And I saw my fortune scrawled out up against the wall
In a crowded marketplace in a town I can't recall
And the teller told me that I would be young and I would fall
And my new friends all assured me that it all was surely false

And back at home, you found religion in a dirty crystal ball
In the back of a dollar store in that shopping mall
And I found religion out in San Cristobal
Now I feel that I've come far enough to give you a call, give you a call

I have not been writing as often as I hoped
But there are some things you're good at and then some you can't control
And you have not been visiting; I can't say that I mind
'Cause every time you go somewhere, you leave somewhere behind

And I saw my fortune scrawled out up against the wall
In a crowded marketplace whose name I cannot recall
And the teller told me that I would be young and I would fall
But I didn't think he meant so soon, no, not so soon at all

And back at home, you found religion in a dirty crystal ball
In the back of a dollar store in that shopping mall
And I found religion out in San Cristobal
Now I feel that I've come far enough to give you a call

So I'm calling now, but it says I don't got the number right.

Your body looks to me a way it never has before
And is this what's making you so sad? And what you did this for
She said your body looks to me a way it never has before
And is this what's making you so sad? And I can't do this anymore

And I found religion in a dirty bathroom stall
In the back of a liquor store in that mini mall
And you found religion when you realized you could fall
Now you say that you've come far enough to give me a call

So you're calling now, but I lie and I tell you that I've moved.

Everything's brand
Everything's brand
Everything's brand

Everything's brand
Everything's brand
Everything's brand new
