I didn’t talk a lot when I was young and I don’t talk too much now
In her bedroom we roll our cigarettes and the oddest thoughts come to me
Like what can’t you pretend? And where’s your boyfriend at?
And how’d I end up here in Michigan?

In East Town I walk it off while you’re still asleep
In East Town you’re holding out and onto everything

They broke up again when she was overseas
Reading Sartre and Montaigne
In February she flew back to me and our little city by the lake
It’s a wondrous life when you hang onto me
I can laugh at stupid things
It’s a silent film, sunlit tenements and bedroom silhouettes

In East Town I walk a wire high above the street
In East Town you don’t want to stop, you’re after everything
In East Town you’re after everything

Now we don’t talk a lot now that she’s in law and I’m working at the shop
She says, “I’d tell the truth if it made any sense but it doesn’t yet”
That’s alright with me, I know what she means
In East Town, in East Town
