Craig Cardiff lyrics : "Brandon From Ithica"
at the coffeeshop to pour the people out
to drink all the coffee read through the magazines
about the famous coming out
the couple two rows up from the left didn't move
as i passed they just lay sleeping in
to one another the way birds cluster together
when facing wind
she was like a camera he a 'b' film
both pretty faced but hard
from smoking too much and waiting too long
and from all the things that life does to break your heart
i told you so don't say i didn't tell you so.
i listened to them all the way westbound
under gold blankets and blue fields
with our sally ann jackets, pillows and backpacks
he turned into her like a shield
from the story of santa claus drunk stuck in the chimney
to the deer they lost making them fly
and how bb king rode the bus to his gig because he was broke
and how sometimes its ok to cry and
i swear it rains there all the time she says
first thing we'll find a room and keep dry
o we'll find a bed and put us in it
it will feel like home in no time
what if there is not much more than this
i'd like to share it with you.
with your 100$ dollars and my 100$ dollars i'm sure...
sure... sure that we'll pull through
i told you so
don't say i didn't tell you so.
