lyrics

(words by Frank Cruz, music by Frank Cruz and Christopher Dixon)

They got cellular phones and aeroplanes
Automobiles and speed trains
A million little different ways
To win that war against distance

But I’ve been keeping my eye on television ads
And reading the billboards from subway tracks
But I’m afraid that they still don’t have a way to turn back time
So I’m settling for the bus line
And heading back home

Notebook computers and PDAs
Sidekicks where sidekicks leave notes all day
But I’ve noticed nobody writes with pens anymore these days
And that’s a shame

Cause I’ve been keeping my eye on television ads
And reading the billboards from subway tracks
But I’m afraid they still don’t have a way to let you inside my mind
So I’m settling for these clumsy lines
And heading back home

We got alarm clocks, a toaster and a coffee mate
There’s a Frigidaire and pots and pans, a microwave
Remember the night we drove to Mexico and got engaged?
It made your mother so goddamned mad

Cause she didn’t know we’d been keeping our eyes on the newspaper ads
Scanning the classifies from subway tracks
We never found the things we thought we just had to have
But either way…

We had those late morning breakfasts on secondhand plates
You played all the records we were into those days
See our choices were choices they were never mistakes
We found a place of our own
Cause I was never one to settle for things
(I wanted everything)
It’s time to go home
