I'm still putting miles on / Keep saying I will slow down / But if the engines running there's no reason to stay / Went to meet him at the Wild Rose / No surprise he didn't show / Good riddance, babe I was already headed on my way // CHORUS: I’ve never been to the Chelsea Motor Inn / But I've got a postcard stamped, addressed to you with nothing to say / I’m not quitting yet, I'm still in love with the sunset / I don't want tomorrow to look just like yesterday // There's no rhyme or reason in the lonely season / And man it seems like this one's gonna stick around all year / The fortune teller told me / there's someone who's gonna hold me / But wherever he is now, he better get it in gear // CHORUS // I'm watching old movies, technicolor dances / Improbable romances / I wouldn't believe in love at first sight / If I hadn't met you that night / And I'd be better off // Good Lord I'm sick of dating / with everybody waiting / for someone to call 'em back and then they just disappear / Take me or leave me, honey it ain't gonna grieve me / But give me the courtesy of making it clear // CHORUS //
