Track Name: Goodbye Temporarily
I crossed the center track,
fell into the cottonwood flats.
Yellow ribbons, marched on past,
tending to a parade.

Felt flowers and wide-brimmed hats,
hiding secrets behind their backs,
I've had about enough of that,
waiting for your reply.

I chose a dead horse in a race,
the right song in disaster phrase,
there's no good in giving chase,
I'm tripping on more than my shoelace.

Out of line, but what's the use?
It's goodbye temporarily,
I'm not the man that you refused,
you're not the girl I left behind me.

When I came down Texas way,
it was snowing on Boxing Day,
and I was feeling like Hemingway,
before his zero hour.

Mockingbird matinee,
showing something from old Broadway,
thought I could finally say,
but you were stuck up in your tower.

I chose a dead horse in a race,
the right song in disaster phrase,
there's no good in giving chase,
I'm tripping on more than my shoelace (in any case,)

Out of line, but what's the use?
It's goodbye temporarily,
I'm not the man that you refused,
you're not the girl I left behind me.
