Lyrics

[Verse 1]

When I first came to see you

I called it Houston Street

Could we meet?

Show me all the things you see

I'm one more here

Some old-time pioneer

Who believes with a shaken faith

I still have some cool

[Pre-Chorus]

I could leave you here with your 'people'

If I'm the flag you'd not prefer to wave

[Chorus]

You're always in my head

You're just what I wanted

I live in constant debt

To feel you, invented

[Verse 2]

When I first came to LA

I met you the old fashioned way: too drunk

And even worse, much too lonely

I'll leave it there

A busted homesteader

Who believes in virgin grace

Somehow, I'll stay proud

[Pre-Chorus]

Any dick can roll up in a suit

But only I would know what really moves you

[Chorus]

You're always in my head

You're just what I wanted

I live in constant debt

To feel you, invented

[Bridge]

There's a cinematic end

I picture it just right

Having trouble with the right words

But you tell me with your eyes

There's something good I miss

There's something I can't find

Do you believe me now?

Can you see it in my eyes?

See it in my eyes?

See it in my eyes?

[Chorus]

You're always in my head

You're just what I wanted

I live in constant debt

To feel you, invented
