lyrics

NO NAME WALTZ

I'm gonna sleep beneath the stars tonight
And wonder where you are
Cause every time I hear the freight train cry
I say, "I love you, too"
It don't feel much like a conversation anymore
But I guess it has to do

I guess you can’t change the past
Sometimes I forget that, I think I gotta go back
To the way that we were before we heard the words
Those awful words

I'm gonna crash into the waves today
Get swallowed by the sea
And if the ocean spits me out again
I catch my breath, breathe out and in
I feel so much smaller but in the end
The problems are just the same

I guess you can’t change the past
Sometimes I forget that, I try so hard to go back
To the way that we were before we heard the words
Those awful words

I’m gonna drink till I don't feel no more
Make love until I'm tired
Cause there's no such thing as moving on
There's only getting by
So I can't blame you
For wanting me to try
