Yea Chelsea pours the contents of her suitcase to the bed
Shakes her head and packs it up again
Hey if the renovated (…?...)
She swears anyone can leave here
The hard part is knowing when
Yeah she heads through the traffic where the DuPage River passes
All the bars she can’t go into anymore
I guess when every pissed off bouncer and every pissed on club knows your name
You hardly ever get too far

She said “I’ve been in this place now for weeks
I wear the chains that’ll shake me to sleep
We can build a great lake and cool off this town
If you fall in I’ll follow you down.”

Now Chelsea combs the mattress for something else that matches
Her boss wants her to stay in style
Yeah he bought a brand new Cadillac, she said “I won’t take a bribe
But I’ll drive one around for a while.”
And on the coldest of evenings she flew out like a hummingbird
It got down to the negative teens that night
But by then she was climbing her upper twenties with a double on the rocks
Out of Midway on a one-way flight.

She said “I’ve been on this island for weeks
Out where the waves never wash me to sleep
I’ll fall in love if it kills me, or leaves me to drown
If you dive in I’ll follow you down”

Chelsea, I heard things about you I don’t want to believe
Well maybe I could look out for you if you could look out for me
You can start over somewhere if it helps, and I can try with someone else
Chelsea, I could look out for you if you look out for me… Lookout.

Yeah Chelsea drags her suitcase in a cool ultra light
She came back home on a redeye flight
And she found me where she left me, about halfway down a bottle
Writing songs for negative teens tonight
And when I get done with work, she’ll be workin up to gin
She says, “I don’t know how you can live in the dark.
But somewhere underneath that leather jacket, beats a leather heart
And it beats, and it beats, and it pulls me apart.”

She said “I’ve been in this town now for years
And all these stories could bring you to tears
We could cut all these waves down to size
We could hold on to time when it flies.”

Chelsea, I heard things about you I don’t want to believe
Well maybe I could look out for you if you could look out for me
You can start over somewhere if it helps, and I can try with someone else
Chelsea, I could look out for you, if you look out for me.
Chelsea, I could look out for you, if you look out for me.
