13. Ballad of San Francisco

Long Line Of Leavers
by Caedmon's Call



 

So I'm walking down the street somewhere outside of San Francisco
And I don't really know my way around
And I'd love to stay a day or two and get into some trouble
But tomorrow I'll be in another town

There's at least one coffee bar for every single couple
And there's at least a couple in this place
Strange the things you notice when the walls are closing in
And the walls are closing in on me today

So where oh where can I find someone, anyone
'Cause there's no way out of here
But here is where I live and so I guess that means
The carrot's gonna dangle for at least another year

I love anonymity and I love being noticed
Just the same as anybody else
Years ago I told you how I loved to be alone
These days I'd be perjuring myself

So where oh where can I find someone, anyone
'Cause there's no way out of here
But here is where I live and so I guess that means
The carrot's gonna dangle for at least another year

It's like you gave me up just like I gave up drinking coffee
So I guess I would've done the same
So now I know I'm lost somewhere outside of San Francisco
But I'm still glad that I came

So where oh where can I find someone, anyone
'Cause there's no way out of here
But here is where I live and so I guess that means
The carrot's gonna dangle for at least another year

words and music by Derek Webb

Behind the Song:
"During a day off from the tour, I found myself wandering around San Luis Obispo, California, looking for adventure. I soon realized I was without companionship, without purpose, and without a map. In the time it took me to find my way back to the bus I had written this song." - Derek Webb (Caedmon's Call)
