Crash and Burn Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I watched the sun come up on Portland
I waved goodbye to all my friends
I packed my car and headed to LA
I gave away all my loose ends
Verse 2
Somebody said you gotta get away
To want to go back home again
I left my universe standing there
Holding the hand of my best friend
Verse 3
And it's laughter that I feel when I think of you
It's one more dusty rose about to turn
I'll see you when I reach New Mexico
If I'm in the mood to crash and burn
Verse 4
I wrote a letter that I never mailed
I rehearsed a dialogue in my head
In case you ever wanted to track me down
I'll take my cell phone to bed
Verse 5
And it's laughter that I hear when I close my eyes
And it's one more punchline I forgot to learn
I call you up when my bottle's dry
I'm on my way to crash and burn
Verse 6
Antigone laid across the road
And let a mack truck leave her there for dead
Just because her lover split the scene
Well love might be great but why lose your head
Verse 7
Well, it's laughter that comes up when I cry for you
And my heart may break again before it learns
And I might be stupid enough to want to fall again
'Cause I've gotten use to the crash and burn
Verse 8
I say I've gotten use to the crash and burn
