Lie on our backs, and look up at the clouds,
Let the dandelion just roar up and come down,
I always thought I'd see you flying by,
You and your lightweight plane painting up the sky

When you left town
mmm mmm mmm,
Town changed,
mmm mmm mmm
Oh and since you've been gone,
it seems faded

Lover in a window, naked and praying
That find new words as beautiful like never stop singin'
We bought a house in the hippie side of town,
And every day at sunset there's a black cloud of crows flying by,

And they leave town,
mmm mmm mmm,
Town changes,
mmm mmm mmm,
And until they come back,
it seems faded

Next time you play, I'll be in the crowd,
Fixed on you and dreamin' that I'm in your song.
All those notes you found, they now belong to you,
Take some with you on the road, but please, oh man, leave me a few.

When you left town
mmm mmm mmm,
Town changed,
mmm mmm mmm
Oh but your record spins around,
until it's faded

My old friend, I find peace in you,
knowing that you lived here and happily made do
I found gold, where you told me to look,
And traces of you were on every path I took.

When you left town
mmm mmm mmm,
Town changed,
mmm mmm mmm
Oh and since you've been gone,
it seems faded

mmm mmm mmm
When you left town,
mmm mmm mmm
Town changed,
mmm mmm mmm
Oh and since you've been gone,
it seems faded

mmm mmm mmm
mmm mmm mmm
mmm mmm mmm
mmm mmm mmm
mmm mmm mmm
