I would see the writing on the wall,
This town was going to the dogs,
I was going to split my time in two,
But I’m happy to waste it all with you,

All I want is for the car
To make it over the next rise,
Because if it makes it over
I’ll be running home backwards,

I could send a message on the wire,
Or take a phone and throw it in the fire,
I could take my time and cut it down,
I’d rather waste it with you on the ground,

I’m tired of writing words
And sending them on out in the ether,
It’s times like these that I
Feel like I am running backwards,

Hushed tones and quiet reasons why,
No reason why I shouldn’t try,
You could feel the ache over the land-line,
This time the timing isn’t right,

But we are moving onward
One foot before another in double time,
As the world flies by in sequence
No time left for running backwards.
