& the sky's the wrong color
11:30 is so different from 1 or 2 & it's throwing me off
& babylon's so beautiful, always think i want to live here
then i think of the train ride & how easy it would be
i can't keep making decisions
based on being close to someone
sacrificing what i want to be there

baby misses me tonight, said he wishes i could stay forever
yeah & i don't get it: i am nothing but what i am for others
& i don't wanna talk about it
i am overthrown government
better that he not find out yet

always walking to the car, i feel the map like second skin
but it's a pleasant human moment when you give me bad directions
& i find myself planning
what will just happen to be playing
when i drive you to buy coffee, for me

baby misses me tonight, said she doesn't expect to be lovers
but there's an offer on the table, if i want when i start feeling better
& i don't wanna talk about it
i am overthrown in seconds
better that she not find out yet

so where's the line, my precious line
i think it's time to be straight with you, so i hope you really want me to
but your manner is begging me to lie
i've been dancing, baby, since i started hanging out with you so

if this is me coming clean
then dirty is so relative
i said intent here means nothing
& you misinterpreted
there goes my chance to
gracelessly damn myself for you

baby misses me tonight, if history is any indication
& i can never make it right, only worsen the situation

baby misses me tonight, & i'll never understand completely
'cause there's no room for me in my mind, so to want me is to misread me
& i don't wanna talk about it
writhe around on failed intentions
i am overthrown in seconds

rorie kelly is on a quest to bring her songs to ears around the world through the cunning use of the internet and a small blue Toyota with over 200,000 miles on it.

rorie writes songs that are melodic and catchy but more thoughtful and introspective than the average pop tune. Her vocals are bigger than you would expect out of her small body and her guitar playing is powerful and percussive.
