Michael Penn – Denton Road lyrics

I've heard people say they've come for miles
To pay their due respects
(for mileage, each expects).
"A pillar of community and style".
"At heart, a family man
Who'd had a change of plan".

Goodbye Sally, Simi Valley,
Denton Road, The Roosevelt Hotel
For my own farewell
And if you don't show, that's fine.

What's it say about me that I'm bored?
Don't need another speech
To know I'm out of reach.
Someone made a joke about the lord
And somehow it relates
To a dash between the dates.

Goodbye Sally, Simi Valley,
Denton Road, The Roosevelt Hotel
For my own farewell
And if you don't show, that's fine.

I don't expect you to.
You've got other things to do
In a life I now know that I never really knew.

The light are going out. They shut the lid.
I guess I lost the thread.
I'm in over my head.

Goodbye Sally, Simi Valley,
Denton Road, The Roosevelt Hotel
For my own farewell
And if you don't show, that's fine.

For my own farewell
And if you don't show, that's fine.
