Lonely Highway
The Magnetic Fields Lyrics


I'm never going back to Jackson
I couldn't bear to show my face
I nearly killed you with my drinking
Wouldn't be caught dead in that place

Lonely highway, only friend
You've got me to keep you warm again

Lonely highway, don't you cry
Let me hold you in my arms tonight

And as I hurdled down the highway
Passed the factories and the graves
I think of all the years I've wasted
I think of all the years I've saved

Lonely highway, only friend
You've got me to keep you warm again

Lonely highway, don't you cry
Let me hold you in my arms tonight

"Lonely Highway"

I'm never going back to Jackson

I couldn't bear to show my face

I nearly killed you with my drinking

Wouldn't be caught dead in that place



Lonely highway, only friend

You've got me to keep you warm again



Lonely highway, don't you cry

Let me hold you in my arms tonight



And as I hurdled down the highway

Past the factories and the graves

I think of all the years I've wasted

I think of all the years I've saved



Lonely highway, only friend

You've got me to keep you warm again



Lonely highway, don't you cry

Let me hold you in my arms tonight

Love this song! Beautiful yet so sad. Great album. Everytime it seems like everything is falling apart around me ,I pick up and move somewhere else thinking life will be better...and it never is. This album and especially this song have been the soundtrack to my life. Thanks.

I've always loved the imagery of a drunk Stephin Merritt laying down on the highway in the middle of the night, hugging the ground like a complete hobo. Oh my god, I love him so much.

One of my favorites of theirs, thanks.
