lyrics

Nearly lost my head in Boston
Talking to her late at night
We never met in person
Now I’m trying to set that right

For two years I’ve planned to make this happen
But I’ve looked for it all my life
This kind of love don’t come easy
8000 miles and then a fight

But I’m going anyway
My bags are packed
I’m sitting on this runway
Now there’s no turning back

Your daddy said no
He left no doubt
But we got two weeks in the Philippines to figure it out

Waiting in Narita I pulled out her picture
I swore I wouldn’t get this way
Never met her but I miss her
I’ll make Manila by the break of day

Because I’m going anyway
I am almost there
There won’t be any honeymoon but I don’t really care
I’ll always wonder
And have my doubts
And I got two weeks in the Philippines to figure it out

And this boy from Oklahoma don’t measure up
Too grizzled and grown to make the grade
I could call it a rescue but it don’t matter much
I’m too old for dreams that keep me awake
I’m too old for dreams that keep me awake

No one greet me at the station
Party of one at the hotel bar
Same old feelings different location
Alone and strange and badly scarred

But I went anyway,
I felt it all
I’m two flights away from being home
And one step from a fall

I looked for an answer
It wasn’t all I found
And I had two weeks in the Philippines to figure it out
