I thought I saw you at the 7-11
I blinked and you went and disappeared
I thought I saw you at the laundromat
Someone who looks like you know just thinks I'm weird
I called your old telephone number
I hung up but they star 69ed
I think I see you everywhere I look these days
And if see you I think I will loose my mind

That's why I'm never going back to Petaluma
'til I can buy the place and burn it to the ground
I'm never going back to Petaluma,
til all I see are ashes on the ground
Well don't look for me down by the river
And don't you look for me down by the square
I'm never going back, I'm never going back, and I'm never going back anywhere

They say you can't go home again to the place that you were
And you'll never be the same person again
You'll never get to travel back in time no sir
And that time, indeed, waits for no man
So don't you waste your time looking back on the past
'cause the mistakes that you made don't mean a thing
If life's a fucking drag cause you fucked up the past
You might as well kick the chair and let the rope swing

I'm never going back to Arizona
'til I can buy the place and burn it to the ground
I'm never going back to Santa Rosa
'cause all I see are bodies on the ground
Well everyone I know is either dead or strungout
And the streets are running crimson with their blood
I'm never going back, I'm never going back, I'm never coming back to you my love

I saw you in a dream I don't remember
I remember you as if you were a dream
It's weird how everyone seems different
And nothing is exactly as it seems
Friends become lovers then enemies then friends
And nothing ever really stays the same
But how can you expect to be a friend to a friend
If every time it hurts you run away

That's why I'm never going back to San Francisco
'til the big one knocks it back into the sea
I'm never coming back to San Francisco until you come back to me
So don't you look for me down in the mission
And don't you look for me at Union Square
I'm never coming back, I'm going back, I'm never going back there
I'm never going back, I'm never going back, I'm never going back, anywhere
