Abuse me and confuse me
But never, never, never use me
You leave me so tired
So utterly uninspired

Thunder bay was a drag, baby
Thunder bay was a drag, baby

Upon the gravel and the dust
If I don't move I will rust
You're a faint recurring melody
I can't seem to recall

In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you
In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you

The sun shines off the powerlines
And the trees they wave me on
There's a black cloud of happiness
I can't finish what I've begun

We hit duluth on a jag, baby
We hit duluth on a jag, baby

I grab my coat, my hat and my paperback
From the corner of my eyes, I see you smile

In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you
In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you

I hear what they're saying
There's no use in praying
So I'll just slip away

In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you
In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you
