The Pros And Cons Of Hitchhiking    30th April 1984

4:47 AM (The Remains of Our Love)    (Waters)

I just cowered in the corner,
My pyjama coat over my head.
And she smiled, as she finished her sandwich.

And her cold eyes fixed me to my dark history,
As she brushed the remains
Of our love from the bed.

And when she had turned back the covers,
When all of the prayers had been read.
She said "Come on over here you silly boy
Before you catch your death of cold
I was only joking.
Let's leave behind the city grime
Let's not compete
It could be fine in the country.
Couldn't it though...come on lets go".

I said "OK"

"Are we going to go now?"

"Where would you like to go darling?"

"Mmm...Vermont...Wyoming, yes".

"Wyoming...huh huh".

"Children...we're going to Wyoming".

"Darling...Which way is Wyoming?"
"Hook a right here,
You're going the wrong way"

"I know that".

"I know children...
Let's see how many...Volvos we pass
On the way to our new life in the country
...One
Jade don't do that, that's really negative".
