lyrics

i wrote him a letter, i thought it might make things easier.
and i finished a novel, i thought it might make my story cohere.
we sped along northbound, past coastline, through dreamtime
watching the dusks roll in
cold lager at midnight on the shoulders of turnpikes
whistling a darkness tune

loners will fall to their knees in time
by chance or by choice or by cosmic rhyme
i knew we'd get along, oh my poison apple friend,
i just wasn't so all-set-to-go just then.

daniel: could you forgive me? maybe you already have.
and hannah: you know you can call me whenever you feel things
turning bad.
oh and mother: now don't you forget me, you know now that i've had
my troubles, too.
oh and father: come down from your castle, your body's grown weary
from all the miles passed beneath you.

oh and lovers will crawl on their knees in time
into a distance of their design
too soon, orange moon, you were my tangerine dream
i can't help but know exactly what you mean, when you're mean
i can't help but know EXACTLY what you mean, when you're mean -

i can't help but know exactly what you mean. ©
