Long handwritten note Deep in your pocket Words, how little they mean When you're a little too late I stood right by the tracks Your face in a locket Good girls, hopeful they'll be and long they will wait
We had a beautiful magic love there What a sad beautiful tragic love affair
In dreams I meet you in warm conversation We both wake In lonely beds In different cities And time Is taking its sweet time erasing you And you've got your demons And darlin' they all look like me
'Cause we had a beautiful magic love there What a sad beautiful tragic love affair
Distance, timing Breakdown, fighting Silence, the train runs off its tracks Kiss me, try to fix it Could you just try to listen? Hang up, give up For the life of us we can't get back
A beautiful magic love there What a sad Beautiful tragic Beautiful tragic Beautiful
What we had a beautiful magic love there (uh-uh) What a sad beautiful tragic love affair We had a beautiful magic love there What a sad beautiful tragic love affair

Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
