Leaving Graceland (2012)

By James Moats in Asheville, NC

There has been a lot of talk of a reunion tour
and I'm not sure how I feel about it
Am I setting myself up for disappointment?
Can we keep the band together now?

I should know better than to think going back
will ever take you forward
You never know, though,
maybe this time we need an optimistic light

We've tried it once or twice in a past life
It should be apparent how that worked out
Maybe time has made us compatible
Maybe old age has turned the heat down

Sometimes I think it all is a gamble
You play your cards right, you come back tomorrow night
and get to play a second hand
Maybe it's just a roll of the dice

There's been a lot of time since the last go
I wonder if we'll remember all the old songs
I had better bring my A game
or else I fear it's all for nothing

and not for trying I don't want to get up
and forget my lines, makes for a terrible night
I've been there plenty and don't care to go back
It sticks with you and fills you full of doubt
