lyrics

Airport

I met you at the airport
When my hair was still short
Now it's growing longer
As I'm growing fonder
Of the things that you said that got you in to my bed

Now it's february and I am still weary
When you left on christmas
For another misses
I headed to an airport too
Hating this city more than I hate you
Standing at the gate
Trying to force fate

Now I'm at an airport
I think I'll cut my hair short
I thought it was temporary
But then you were very
Affectionate and passionate
Oh how I was misled
I should have let you pay the plane ticket
Should have played the game

But it was getting warmer
Warm enough to sit outside
Though you're not pretty in the sun
I said I'm not gonna run
What had just begun
Will outshine your
Shortcomings
Should have been running

Now it's a hot, hot summer
And I'm cool, cool, cool
You won't be getting anything
And I will not attach a string
When you talk about the sea
How we'll go there you and me
I know just what I'll get
And by dawn I will regret

Headlights on down the street
In pursuit of happiness
Old the haunting loneliness
Used my hope
New the dress
These preowned pieces of my heart
Hold them tight don't fall apart
As I do remember
It is soon September

I'll meet you in the city
Faces read possibility
I'll meet you in the park
Where we meet after dark
Where we huddle and cluster
Love here is just faster
In the hours of despair
Isn't he just as fair

Now it's a hot, hot summer
And I'm cool, cool, cool
You won't be getting anything
And I will not attach a string
When you talk about the sea
How we'll go there you and me
I know just what I'll get
And by dawn I will regret

Now my hair is long
I guess I am strong
And independent
I'll make do and mend
I'll give a good fifty percent
Plane schedule at hand
But a hundred I'll demand
Let's not get this out of hand

I look at the sky
See the planes passing by
I could be in one of them
I could never leave again
I could write a travelogue
But it would be a monologue

It was a hot, hot summer
I was cool, cool, cool
Still you were getting everything
You really got under my skin
When I think about the sea
How we crossed it you and me
How could I forget
What you give is what you get
