My joints aren’t loyal and I’m feeling old
This weather has got me down
And everyone I pass reminds me of a used up rodeo clown

It’s times like this can’t help myself
I gotta get into the car
Any distance satisfies when the radio plays NPR

I find myself in our old neighborhood
Where you kissed me in the snow
Fumbling in the vacant lot so that Jesus wouldn’t know

Your hair was crystallizing
The flurries were making sheep
I wasn’t the first boy that you loved but I could be the first man to keep

Nothing goes according to plan
Does it, Mary Anne?
But I’ll come around again

Well I don’t know if you recollect
The way we had such kind neglect

And I can’t tell if I’m just bored
Playing with rhymes instead of cutting the cord

I’m sorry for misremebering
I’m sorry I never called
I’m mostly sorry I haven’t told you it’s you I miss after all

Sometimes you beat the rain
Sometimes it beats you
And sometimes the story you’ve told yourself turns out not to be true

Nothing goes according to plan
Does it, Mary Anne?
But I’ll come around again

Nothing goes according to plan
Forgive me, Mary Anne
Till I come around again
