I had a dream of us together
In a world where we knew what was true
Oh Patti don't lead the life that I left you with
It's been such a long time and I know

We tried together to discover
Why we failed the test of our time
Oh Patti don't lead the life that they made for you
I'll be gone a long while and you'll know

And don't feel sorry for lover boy
You know he wants the world to love him
And then he goes and spoils it all

Don't feel sorry for lover boy
He wants the world to love him
Then he goes and spoils it all for love

There's no one out here you can listen to
And certainly never yourself
Oh Patti don't lead the life that I left you with
Listen to the cars call in the rain

I got so tired of concluding
That there's nothing for us to conclude
Oh Patti don't look for certainty in your life
I've gone where a lost cause can be found
