The troubles of this world
Were never yours, dear heart,
Couldn’t hold them in your hands
If they were.
I know you’ve been thinking
That you’re bigger than you are,
But I don’t mind, I don’t mind
Standing by.

I got it in my mind
That we would move to Kansas City.
Pack our bags and
Burn them with the house.
You’re a decent shot,
I like picking up the casings
We make lots of fires
But never put them out.

Oh, we could move to Kansas City
Be anyone we wanna be
You gotta know how to cut yourself loose
Cause there are other things, yeah,
Other things that bleed.

Success was just a name
Someone gave to the champion
We like to tell the winner
What she’s won
What a medal gave her more
Was a lock on her door.
Now, I don’t know her
No one knows her anymore.


Oh, I don’t want to go alone
You’re gonna have to come along
Oh, I don’t want to go alone
You’re gonna have to come along
You’re gonna have to come along
