recorded to 1" tape at the old Type Foundry, Portland, Oregon

lyrics

crazy baby
where'd you go?
tripped at the gate
now you're up and running
left too soon
like all lovers do

you turned off your phone
and you won't check your messages
mailbox is full
of folks who want
a piece of you
and I want mine too

I couldn't fix you
if I wanted to

a date to keep
a place to be
and there's no room
for company
and I'm sorry
maybe next week?

dragging that
weight around
jaws are flapping
all over town
was it heaven sent?
or an accident?

they couldn't fix you
though they wanted to

you could turn off the projector
and I'll put my screen away
but if you don't want to
I won't ask you
you don't want to
I won't ask you

crazy baby
where'd you go?
tripped at the gate
now you're up and running
left too soon
why'd you leave so soon?
