VERSE 1

I was from Kentucky
And you were from L.A.
You ran off to Boston
When I glanced the other way
I guess I didn't see the signs
Until it was too late
I wasn't catching on and
You got tired of the wait
At the very last, I finally saw
What I was supposed to see
And I fell in love with you
As you fell out of love with me

CHORUS 1

You know, I've always wondered
What the sunsets look like there
Are they red or golden as
They shimmer on your hair
So many times, I've wondered
If I'm ever gonna know
But after all these years, you're still in Boston
And I'm still down here, hiding in the mountains
Somewhere outside Ceredo

VERSE 2

Remember how I'd sing while you played
And they'd listen in
I'd give everything I have
To sing for you again
The way you played piano while
You sang along with me
Was like the way you played my soul
And set my spirit free
The first time that we kissed
I think that I was most surprised
Because it was the last time
That I looked into your eyes

CHORUS 2

You know, I've always wondered
What the rain's like on the coast
Is the water sweeter there
Or heavier than most
So many times, I've wondered
If I'm brave enough to go
But after all these years, you're still in Boston
And I'm crying in my car at close to midnight
Somewhere outside Ceredo

VERSE 3

No one could believe it when
You stayed away that fall
I didn't know till later that
You'd told no one at all
Some people thought that maybe you
Just couldn't say goodbye
And still, I often wonder
If you knew that I would cry
And if I could have stopped you
When you tried to go away
I think that I would have done
Anything to make you stay

CHORUS 3

You know, I've always wondered
If you ever think of me
Do you lie awake at night
And wonder if I'm still alright
You know, I've always wondered
If you think of us back then
And if you can imagine
What a pair we would have been
So many times, I've wondered
Why I still think of you so
But after all these years, you're still in Boston
And I'm hanging up the phone again, like last time
Somewhere outside Ceredo

OUTRO

And sometimes, you know, I wonder
If it's worth all that we missed
Why the first time that I loved you
Was the only time we kissed
