Lyrics

I got a friend in every city
And a second one if I can get a hit of whiskey
B-52s up at 5280
Mile high not the only thing to elevate me
And that's where the trouble begins
No matter what I'm doing
Ruin a handle of mother's ruin
Or the crown
And I'm sleeping in my button down
Waking up to do it all again in another town

Creeping on another round
But when I've had that drink
I can't help but think
Pushing the frontier
Might have put myself on the brink
And if I had a crystal ball
I'd pull up the whole fam, blow a kiss to y'all
I'm in a strange land, no plan
Trying to find bars so that I don't miss the call
When I'm gone

Yes, I did it again
Dropped in for a visit and then
Had suits try to pin me down
But I can't listen to them, no
I've been away for a minute
Could never change, now I'm in it
But every day I'm still thinking of you
Huh I keep dreaming of what's gone, long gone
I keep dreaming of what's gone, long gone, yeah

I miss my friends but I don't miss my ends
Miss those talks but I don't miss my block
Feeling extraordinary, 'cause when I'm cruising the Canaries
I never really dream of being home in Ontari - oh!
I'm taking in the light off a wave
Feeling like I might wash away
And that that would be okay
No currents pull me the wrong way
It seems I always end up in a Spanish enclave

A Cuban bistro, Dominican holiday
Kiwi beach zone, Australian reef
Cambodian islet, Morrocan art show
The farther that I get the less I need cargo
In my heart I always carry your heart, though
But one day I'll be back on the 49th parallel
Ride this world like a carousel
Finding new hideouts and stories that I care to tell
'Til another time, farewell
I'm gone

Yes, I did it again
Dropped in for a visit and then
Had suits try to pin me down
But I can't listen to them, no
I've been away for a minute
Could never change, now I'm in it
But every day I'm still thinking of you
I keep dreaming of what's gone, long gone
I keep dreaming of what's gone, long gone

I keep dreaming of what's gone, long gone
I keep dreaming of what's gone, oh long gone
I keep dreaming of what's gone
I keep dreaming of what's gone, long gone
Dreaming of what's gone, long gone

Dreaming, dreaming, yeah
Dreaming, dreaming, yeah
Dreaming of what's gone
What's long gone
What's long gone
I'm dreaming I'm long gone
