Boston

July 10, 2007

in the light of the sun,
is there anyone? 
oh, it has begun.
oh dear you look so lost, 
eyes are red and tears are shed,
this world you must’ve crossed – you said,

“you don’t know me, 
you don’t even care, oh yeah,”
you said,
“you don’t know me, 
and you don’t wear my chains, oh yeah,”

essential yet appealed, 
carry all your thoughts 
across an open field.
when flowers gaze at you,
they’re not the only ones 
who cry when they see you.
you said,

“you don’t know me, 
you don’t even care, oh yeah,”
you said
“you don’t know me, 
and you don’t wear my chains, oh yeah,”

she said, “i think i’ll go to Boston –
i think i’ll start a new life,
i think i’ll start it over, 
where no one knows my name,
i’ll get out of California, 
i’m tired of the weather,
i think i’ll get a lover and fly him out to Spain.
i think i’ll go to Boston,
i think that i’m just tired
i think i need a new town, 
to leave this all behind.
i think i need a sunrise, 
i’m tired of the sunset,

i hear it’s nice in the summer, 
some snow would be nice. oh yeah.”

“you don’t know me, 
you don’t even care.”

“Boston, where no one knows my name – yeah
where no one knows my name.
where no one knows my name.
yeah Boston,
where no one knows my name.”

(Augustana)
