lyrics

When you look at the old photographs
you can see the fear in his eyes
cause he knows he don't deserve her
even though he'd never hurt her it won't last
she's still thinking 'bout the joker
that ran away and left her with this poker face
and the picture's faded grey like so many lonely days with all the good times past

now she's driving backwards
back through fireflies and ashes
she's so close to what she's after
it gets caught in her eye lashes

and there's an old song playing on the radio
it's playing soft and low
takes her memory where it wants to go
it took 18 years of drinking, thinking
Baby is this really how it ought to be?
Somehow this feeling just gets lost on me
can't you see I'm dying for this fever dream?

She's tired of writing unsent letters
saying, Sundays ain't so bad anymore
and it's only every now and then I wonder what the hell I'm waiting for
and every winter turns to Spring
and he knows she'd still give anything to be sitting on her darling's knee
knowing he was hers to keep

now she's driving backwards…

and there's an old song playing on the radio
it's playing soft and low
takes her memory where it wants to go
it took 18 years of wanting him, a full moon and an old blue Cadillac
to bring her back, to bring her back
