about

this song is a response to "For Ramona" by Bob Dylan

lyrics

back then i was changing like the weather
back when i let you kiss my lips and i let you see my tears.
i sat down to write you this letter, 'cause
maybe you've been crying, baby,
and i'm nowhere near.

i went down to the south
to escape the crowd
they all talk so loud
saying nothing at all.

the fever of youth keeps the mind so clean,
we get hungry, we get reckless,
we get drunk on our thoughts.
we see right and wrong and nothing in between,
we borrow to buy what can never be bought, so

i went down to the south
to escape the crowd.
they all talk so loud,
saying nothing at all

and a wildflower dies
like a rose in a glass
but one bends back to earth
and one’s thrown in the trash.

so i wrote you this letter, i’m just trying to say
that you said maybe someday you might need me.
if someday ever happened to be today, well
why don’t you come down here and see me?

i went down to the south
to escape the crowd.
they all talk so loud,
saying nothing at all.
