lyrics

I wanna go somewhere that it always rains,
like the first time I got on a plane.
I saw it all from the window seat:
we pierced the clouds and it came in sheets.
The darkened skyline turned to night,
pouring rain against the flight.
Thirty-thousand feet in the air,
against the clouds I saw it there:

Your silhouette on the spiral stairs,
like the amber mountains of Sleeping Bear,
like the hobbit houses in Charlevoix,
like the lantern lit at Sable Point.
So tell your sister and tell your son,
found myself in Washington,
and tell your exes and tell your friends,
ended up in Oregon.

Oregon—tell me what was different then.
Oregon, Oregon—tell me what was different then.

I wanna go somewhere that it always works,
and I'm so glad even when it hurts,
'cause I know I can only get close
when I wrote him a letter about the coast.

It said: your silhouette on the spiral stairs,
like the amber mountains of Sleeping Bear,
like the hobbit houses in Charlevoix,
like the lantern lit at Sable Point.
So tell your sister and tell your son,
found myself in Washington,
and tell your exes and tell your friends,
ended up in Oregon.

Oregon—tell me what was different then.
Oregon, Oregon—tell me what was different then.
Oregon, Oregon, Oregon,
Oregon, Oregon, Oregon.
