Once in a while
I grab my coat and I drive into town,
Where I hope I’ll see you walking around
Just like I used to.
These days burn fast,
Faster than my cigarettes can turn into ash,
So I just dream about the time I saw you last,
And all the other times, too.

But Gloria, I’ve tried
All of their prescriptions,
And nothing makes these long nights end.
There ain’t a single goddamn thing
That I wouldn’t give
To see you at my door again.

Lately all I’ve seen is rain,
And your face inside a hundred picture frames.
You haven’t missed much here, it all stays the same,
But I guess I like it that way.
So if I ever call your name,
Lover it’s just because I like the way it rings,
And for you I’ll wait forever in these wings,
Even when the light is gone away.

But Gloria, I’ve tried
All of their prescriptions,
And nothing makes these long nights end.
There ain’t a single goddamn thing
That I wouldn’t give
To see you at my door again.
