ORLAND PARK

Driving along
Kept your letters and your jacket for karma
Rearview mirror's a lipstick horizon
A twilight glance
The loneliest thoughts
Go spinning round your head like a disco ball
Regret begins to add up
And you don't get no sleep at all

hook:
You with the cascade eyes
I wanna thank you
From the bottom of my heart
Where everything got dark
In Orland Park

On the road
Miles and miles of America
Me in the van, you in the editing room
With nothing left
Just a couple of passing notes on the treble clef
Nowhere to go
No one to help us along

hook:
You with the cascade eyes
I wanna thank you
From the bottom of my heart
Where everything got dark
In Orland Park

Driving along
Got the radio tuned to the AM band
Looking up at the sky,
Even stars have to sleep sometime
But Mercury shines
And contemplates an orbit beyond the sun
Nowhere to go
No one to help it along

hook:
You with the cascade eyes
I wanna thank you
From the bottom of my heart
Where everything got dark
In Orland Park
