Portland, Maine

Album: Sundown Heaven Town (2014)
  • I don't want to be talking on the phone every night
    Six PM, which timezone, yours or mine?
    Ain't gonna worry where you are, who you're with
    Let's just agree, this is it

    Portland, Maine, I don't know where that is
    Leave your bags in the car, keep it running
    I won't pretend, I don't want these things
    But Portland, Maine, I don't know where that is
    And I don't want to know, I don't want to know

    See I'm just saving us some trouble somewhere down the line
    This kind of town you just leave behind
    And you don't know it yet, but you won't come back
    And I ain't going nowhere and you know that

    Portland, Maine, I don't know where that is
    Leave your bags in the car, keep it running
    I won't pretend, I don't want these things
    But Portland, Maine, I don't know where that is

    And you can go ahead and hate me, that's just fine
    It doesn't matter either way, I'm right

    Portland, Maine, I don't know where that is
    Leave your bags in the car, keep it running
    I won't pretend, I don't want these things
    But Portland, Maine, I don't know where that is
    Portland, Maine, I don't know where that is

    I don't want to know
    I don't want to know
    I don't want to know

    Portland, Maine
    I don't know where that is Writer/s: Abe Stoklasa, Donovan Woods
