lyrics

Just last week I left Tuscan
I hitched a ride on back a big old contractor van
and it's a good thing that I knew the Spanish word for "west"
the next day, I got off at a diner
it was the worst night of sleep
I think I've ever had in my life
but I thanked him
and threw a few ones his way
and the waitress, she was a real dime
she talked about her kids, I talked about the road
and she told me
"hey kid, I'll buy your book someday"
and at that point I knew
the time I had to spend with you was through
I knew what I had to do
I'll see you on the other side of the moon
I'll see you on the other side of the moon
a few more days and a few more nights
I found myself deep in a city full of lights
and despite them you can disappear pretty easily
at an old brick bar down on west and 23
there's an old friend of mine who I always stop and see
and it's no stretch to say that he's seen better days
he said, "listen to me, I know you don't watch too much T.V., but from all the way out here to Washington D.C., they don't care if you or I get sick"
and at that point I knew
the time I had to spend with you was through
I knew what I had to do
I'll see you on the other side of the moon
I'll see you on the other side of the moon
