lyrics

The afterimage in my mind
Plays 'til the end and then rewinds
I know each and every frame
Beginning with you standing there
Open mind and teased up hair
And ending with you on a plane

And now - knowing your brutal history
Some fool will try and solve your mystery

You've got to be the brightest thing
To come My way
I'll never breathe again
And now it is you're telling me
You've left and gone away
To spend six months in Ohio

Sometimes it hurts so I pretend
That you and I are only friends
And time never really heals me
It started as a sordid tale
About the ghosts of Lauderdale
Light never will reveal me

And when you come back here you'll probably find
That afterimage playing in your mind

You've got to be the brightest thing
To come My way
I'll never breathe again
And now it is you're telling me
You've left and gone away
To spend six months in Ohio
It'll look good on your bio
To spend maybe a year in Ohio

You know I'm not really afraid of the dark
'Cause baby I know you and I could never really be that far apart
I'm reaching out across the thousand or so miles inbetween us
Hoping that I'll find your hand waiting there....

You've got to be the brightest thing
To come My way
I'll never breathe again
And now it is you're telling me
You've left and gone away
To spend six months in Ohio
It'll look good on your bio
To spend a year in Ohio
You'll reach tenure in Ohio

(Or was that Manhattan, Kansas?)
