lyrics

I went out to Chicago
You were the last to know
Such a lovely trip I planned
You begged me not to go

You never wanted to see the pictures
You never wanted to see the pictures

I got married on the beach
Eloped at the start of March
I called you right after
I said my vows

You didn’t answer the phone
You didn’t answer the phone

All the words left unsaid
All hurt feelings buried instead
I can hardly catch my breath
Now that you’re gone

Then the visits stopped coming
The drive seemed so long
It was only a matter of time
You stopped asking on the phone

When are you coming home?
When are you coming home?

All the words left unsaid
All hurt feelings buried instead
I can hardly catch my breath
Now that you’re gone

I went out to California
Played the big stage in DC
With my heart beating in my throat
I remember what you said to me

Keep chasing the dream, babe.
Keep chasing the dream.

All the words left unsaid
All hurt feelings buried instead
I can hardly catch my breath
Now that you’re gone
