lyrics

i wrote my first songs down there in the basement
and right across the street, cappy pulled my sister on the sled
i rode west chasing a dream but caught a life instead
so i towed it home to missouri

just barely lost the longing 'fore it lopped off my head
now i'm finally feeling fine 'bout being alone till i'm dead
i'm thinking one more test & my reactive mind's vanquished
i'm thinking no more sentimentality for places
no more sentimentality for places

way back when my folks split up, i figured i'd do the same
but i suppose i never severed all those ties in my brain
seemed no matter what was happening, i'd dissociate
from relentless reality

and i guess i'd never said goodbye to this old baldwin
the lightning bugs, the country road, or all those green rolling hills
but if i want to live the way eckhart tol'me to live
then that means no more sentimentality for places
no more sentimentality for places

how i still wish we all could somehow be together again
gretchen, steve, allie & sebastian
but he just had to go and grow up like some kind of fucking idiot
so no more sentimentality for places
no more sentimentality for places
