I gotta look back, I gotta ask why
Forty-eight frames of your precious time
Are too much to ask for free
Sitting in the dark in the cineplex
The magic of the moment our eyes first met
But you were blind and never saw me
A familiar voice in Dolby sound
But never a connection when I call your phone
The words I hear are only lines
Love expires as the credits roll
Light dies out when the curtains close
I wanted more than scripted lives

I’ve got one thing to say to you
Remember what we came to do
The lies that we told came true
You’ve made it now and we’re through

Two thousand miles from a Texas town
Red carpet strolls and Versace gowns
Seduced you away from me
A soulless little yellow man
Offers absolution for a million sins
And promises to set you free
But you hide behind an entourage
Imprisoned by a magazine image
Of a glossy, public pose
Hiding out in the paparazzi pack
Feasting on you through their looking glass
I wait here in the cold.

I’ve got one thing to say to you
Remember what we came to do
The lies that we told came true
I’ve made it now and we’re through

A ‘Vette dust storm through the desert heat
The windshield is our silver screen
We flee the beast into the night
Neon splattered on the valley floor
Like the glow of crime scene luminal
In the CSI’s UV light
A hundred miles an hour into the final scene
Wind swallows up our dialogue screams
The slug line never looks back
They’ll find you in my tight embrace
Like the dreams we had in younger days
We are the stars in the final act

I’ve got one thing to say to you
Remember what we came to do
The lies that we told came true
We’ve made it now and we’re through

Jet Blue jumping off runway nine
Climbing east on the last red eye
One mind’s crossed, another dreams
But nothing’s ever as it seems

Lightning spikes the midnight sky
A heartland pierced with a hundred lies
Thunder feared but never heard
Our feelings tossed in a gale of words

Sometimes right, often wrong
Often lost, but sometimes found
We fell in love and fell out again

Wings without wind,
Love without sin
Never looking back behind
Racing down the centerline

Airbus floats into a misty dawn
A final approach to a coming down
Boston Harbor blooms into view
Three thousand miles away from you.

Sometimes right, often wrong
Often lost, but sometimes found
We fell in love and fell out again

Wings without wind,
Love without sin
Never looking back behind
Racing down the centerline

I am a whirling dervish, a carousel of chaos
Spinning and twirling ‘til my thoughts uncross
The hum of darkness, soothes my restless mind
And sails me away to where our thoughts entwine

Apart from each other, we dream one dream
Visions linked by a lone moonbeam

Without words we speak, sitting side-by-side
Everywhere and nowhere pass by on our lonesome ride
Embraced in our travels, we mean no others harm
Chasing a moment with your hand on my arm

Apart from each other, we dream one dream
Visions linked by a lone moonbeam

Fingers of wind, running through my hair
Break my spinning spell with cool night air
Wake to the noise of a same old different day
Our dream will always be there to take me away

Apart from each other, we dream one dream
Visions linked by a lone moonbeam

I am a whirling dervish, a carousel of chaos
Spinning and twirling ‘til my thoughts uncross
