lyrics

There’s a black cat in the garden and I’m far from home
In other people’s houses like I’m studying their lives
Could I take you with me darling if I came back here again
Or do I have to learn these lessons while I’m traveling alone
If I want to make my way to you again

The women here are stern and kind
And the men just want to play
If you had to pick a single place
Where would you choose to stay

A woman told my fortune in the south of France
She said you could be a mother yet and you could be a star
You could keep on working at this writing songs to break your heart
You could spend your whole life driving town to town inside your car
You could run and find you’re right back at the start

But here’s what I would like to know
Though I try to travel light
Do the people come and people go
Or is it just the days and nights

Someday I’ll find a place where I can rest my head
In the middle of the city or some country town
In the stillness of the evening let my long hair down
Will you be in bed beside me as I lay me down to sleep
When I wake I wonder what I’ll get to keep

I’d like to save this song for you
Through all the nights and days
When it’s time to pick a single place
You’re where I’d choose to stay

But here’s what I would like to know
Though I try to travel light
Do the people come and people go
Or is it just the days and nights
