Funny how a lot of things I've done had a lot to do with you
There were a lot of words you said just goes to show none of it was true
Thought I took up a bigger space
Now I know, shoulda had nothin to do with you

So I'm boarding an airplane for some far off place where I can sing my songs alone
Say whatever I choose to say and the words I write you will never know
Just give me an empty stage in an empty room at the end of a dead end road
Thought I took up a bigger space

There's a woman at the end of the bar, she closes my tab and as I walk away
"Is there anything I can do for you?"
snd I told her "I'm straight"
"Thought I took up a bigger space," she said
"Guess I'm just another face, just another way to sublimate your sadness"

So I went for a drive under the big sky where the roads have no names
Headed for the horizon, ran out of gas in the middle of the North Dakota plains
Spent the night on the hood my car, lit my last cigarette and the wind took it away
(and the stars laughed their little heads off)

Just an actor in a one-act play
Spewin' lines on a beat up stage
No one planned a party after
Just echoes in the dusty rafters
