Lyrics

I'm goin' back to New York City
I just can't wait no more for you
I got so lonely, sold what you gave me
'Cept that raincoat, the famous blue

And I don't need time to think about it
I don't let reminders get me down like before
But you know I used to know you
Back when local bars and broken hearts were home, and we were open all night long

Maybe I'll go out Chicago
Ain't that where the blues belong?
I heard you came by, sup by the radio
Somethin' about the topback, wayfarers on

But I don't need time to think about it
I don't let reminders get me down like before
But you know I used to know you
Back when local bars and broken hearts were home, and we were open all night long

And all this must've been comin' a long, long time, 29 years of nerves on fire
Nobody came and nobody saw, made a wreck of myself with the headlights on
Worked these hands straight down the bone, carried the weight until the weight took
Over

Ended up standing at a fork in the road with you
But I don't need time to think about it
I don't let reminders get me down like before
But you know I used to know you
Back when local bars and your crooked heart was my home, mmhmm...
And I will never know the town where you finally settled down
With the top back on a Cadillac and your sunglasses on
And you can't make me whole, I have to find that on my own
But I held you, babe, a long, long time ago, and we were open all night long
