Lyrics

Like Always, Alex

This water will not go to hot from cold,

and why will they not stock more soap inside these bathrooms?

Don’t they sell it just inside the Texaco?

God, I thank you for the change of clothes, kept in the trunk of his Volvo.

They won’t fit me quite, but they’re better than the mess that I have on.

 

Don’t you take this hard.

Look, your favorite song on the radio.

We’ve been through tough times before,

now they’re not going to happen any more.

Like always, Alex, I did this for you.

 

I brought every map that you and I have owned. I’m as open as the road.

Spin the globe, I’ll let you decide.

Take us far, the world is wide.

I promise there is nothing here you’ll miss, at least not miss for very long.

Everything you need is in your heart, so for now keep your voice down.

 

Don’t you take this hard.

Look, the sun is coming up through the dark.

We’ve been through tough times before,

now they’re not going to happen any more.

Cheer up, sweetheart, I did this for you.

I did this for you.

 

Don’t you think this is much simpler when I’m only thinking of you?

Don’t think this is a burden for me; it’s just to show I love you.

We’re starting over.

I am starting over.

 

I have pushed my fingers six feet through the ground.

Stay in the car, don’t turn around.

I am planting new hope for our future. You can watch it grow.

You stay right here with Paddington the Bear.

I just need to wash this dirt from my hair, then we’ll go.

Just you keep your head below the window.

 

Don’t you take this hard.

Look, we can stop again in an hour or two.

We’ve been through tough times before,

and I don’t want to go through any more.

Like always, Alex,I did this for you.

I did this for you.

I did this for you.
