ON MAGNOLIA


Another winter on Magnolia
Another year in Tennessee
Another question of my holding off
Another date I did not leave
I thought I’d be in Midtown holding you
On the train to Chelsea you’d kiss me
The city of Nashville is on fire tonight
With dreams of who we used to be 

Memories come and go
Like cars on this road
On Magnolia, I sleep alone
On Magnolia, I sleep alone 

Another letter that I want to write
Another week we will not speak
Another question if I’m on your mind
If another man has kissed your cheek
Do you pine for those Magnolia nights?
Like I pine for Brooklyn streets?
The city of Nashville is on fire tonight
With dreams of who we used to be 

Memories come and go
Like cars on this road
On Magnolia, I sleep alone
On Magnolia, I sleep alone 

Another winter on Magnolia
Another year in Tennessee
