Crash & Burn

(Sheryl Crow)


I watched the sun come up on Portland

I waved goodbye to all my friends

I packed my car and headed to L.A.

I gave away all my loose ends


Somebody said you gotta get away

To want to go back home again

I left my universe standing there

Holding the hand of my best friend


And it's laughter that I feel when I think of you

It's one more dusty rose about to turn

I'll call you when I reach New Mexico

If I'm in the mood

To crash and burn


I wrote a letter that I never mailed

I rehearsed a dialogue in my head

In case you ever wanted to track me down

I take my cell phone to bed


And it's laughter that I hear when I close my eyes

And it's one more punch line I forgot to learn

If I call you up when my bottle's dry

I'm on my way

To crash and burn


Antigone laid across the road

And let a Mac truck leave her there for dead

Just because her lover split the scene

Well love may be great but why lose your head


And it's laughter that comes out, when I cry for you

And my heart may break again before it learns

And I might be stupid enough to want to fall again

'Cause I've gotten used

To crash and burn

I say

I've gotten used

To the crash and burn
