If you're living in the past
You can move in with me
I've got nothing on this screen
Except black and white TV
And I won't be changing it
To anything past '70

Don't you remember, movies together
Bogart and Karloff
And you'd always smart-off

I sorted through your things
Though I swore I would forget
All the things we did together
That I knew I would regret
The pretty girls on TV make
Me glad you didn't stay
Even though you liked those clothes
You'd never dress that way

Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo
Lauren Bacall, I loved them all

The color of our years
Was painted in red, my dear
The theme's repetitive, I guess
But I still love you the best

Little toy nightlight
Stays on for you at night
The thought of you leaving
Keeps it awake every evening

Shallow waters, my shallow head
Can't remember what I said
But I know I sounded smart
When you stood there and broke my heart
And I know I looked real slick
Old clothes, hair black and thick

Didn't you notice
My eyes looked gorgeous
Didn't you see them
As you were leaving
As you were leaving
As you were leaving
As you were leaving
