From Virginia to New York / by Megan DiBello

sorry i’m sorry you had to cross the state lines

sorry i’m sorry for state lines you've crossed

i fell in love too many times

for moments into months

yearnings into years

talkin’ tears i can’t confront

he smokes cigarettes in the shower

and I talk a million miles an hour

he drinks a beer when he drives

and I thank god that he’s alive

changes chords on his guitar

like I change clothes into night

but cleans up like a suit just hemmed

and I clean up like a black new dress

i fell in love too many times

for moments into months

yearnings into years

talkin’ tears I can’t confront

sorry i’m sorry you had to cross the state lines

sorry i’m sorry for state lines you've crossed

he kisses me when he leaves in the morning

i lay next to him as we sleep

he taught me how to be a ninja

i taught him how to think again

i want to drive around in his car

dancing singing’ like rock stars

we are as rich as they come

decent income and totally fun

we've been friends for so long

damn may be the rest of our lives

i like pieces of men

like breaking off states

to form a new continent

thought I fell in love

with a man who understands

that I misunderstand everything about him
