Come back to New England
It’s you that I’m needing
Next time we're in Cassadaga
We’ll have to get that reading
Because the future’s so far away
And today is just so fleeting
Let’s climb up to the tippy top
Of the giving tree we seeded

And look out across the tapestries
Of homes and love and catastrophes
They can keep their cul-de-sacs
If we can keep our chemistry
Daily life's so byzantine
Yet the path to you’s so labyrinthine
They can keep their bric-a-brac
If we can keep our silly dream

See, my love grows and grows, exponentially
But sometimes only manifests existentially
Close these tired eyes, you’re all I see
Open them in the morning time and it’s just stupid me

Because your love is like a tryptamine
A brand new realm I can’t unsee
Come back to New England with me
Over time the longing grows
Like the nose of Pinocchio

Come back to New England with me
Come back to New England with me
Come back to New England with me
Come back to New England with me
