She asked why my love would last for long
What in her world I base it on
I said "what a 'girl' way to relate
Throw what works fine up for debate"
And let it go
But I'll admit I didn't know
I'd assume there's some convention
To obviate the question
And move these things along

19th Street exit with the oaks
And the head-soothing shade of hoax
No city boards in '23
Stayed up nights planning routes for me
And that's fine
But I'll admit I wouldn't mind
Letting someone do the driving
Who knows where we're arriving
Despite hysteria

That's why we don't live in Mauritania
Why we like something else going on
Why we all moved to California
And not Boca Raton

I lost my backpack on the train
It had more in it than my brain
Will I now have to learn again
How to love things, each like a friend
Same deal
But I'll admit it's lost appeal
I keep filling binder pages
That I won't read for ages
Regret it when I do

New York scenes with the way they talk
Knock me out when they jazz the rock
Cold keeps Chicago boyfriends warm
I dig how they defy the norm
The West Coast, well
I'll admit it's still the most
Hanging out near Manson slayings
Industrial decayings
Inverse utopia

That's why we don't live in Mauritania
Why we like something else going on
Why we all moved to California
And not Saskatchewan
Or Sierra Leone
