The flicker of the candle looks like a one-way conversation
Reacting to something that nobody else can see
While I sit here at the table and relive the whole situation
Until a valet who wants to go home comes in and gives me my keys

Tonight, every single star is shining
The power lines all sizzle and buzz
But now that it's too late Maria
I see it all for what it was

There's nothing sadder than a streetlight shining on a stretch of empty sidewalk
Maybe the fog that I've been living in is lifted for the first time in weeks
Every day's been a step towards perfecting the art of the small talk
So I never have to say something I might really mean

But I remember all those final words you told me
How I was too green to be blue
But now that it's too late Maria
I can see how that was true

Now that I am in your city, I've come across the company you've been keeping
They all hit it off so well with some infamous ghost of my past
It's so hard to imagine what you could have possibly told them
Some wonder how I'm doing but most don't even ask

But now every single door is held open
I even signed some autographs
But now that it's too late Maria
We can both look back and laugh

There's always more to say, but I'm just skipping to the ending
After you move back to Texas, and I meet a girl who wants to change her name
And we both start to forget the problems that were never worth having
And everybody goes on living, watching nothing really change

There will always be a part of you that's with me
And you sure as hell had better feel the same
Cause now that it's too late Maria
There is no one here to blame
