lyrics:  

The lights are bright in Dallas Texas
Twinkling the diamonds the oil queens wear
Of all the girls in Dallas Texas
You were the one who wasn't meant to be there

You should've been born to a different mother
In Mendocino County 30 wintertimes ago
So much love from a different father
So much lupine and poison oak

(chorus:)
Run, run, run
Run from the sound of that confusion that echoes from every oil drum
From a distance that shines like a field of blazing suns
She's leaving a familiar Babylon
Leaving the search for another splendid one
She's leaving Dallas, she's leaving Dallas
She's finally leaving Dallas, she's leaving Dallas

Remember the ways of your old lover
Remember the sweat of fingers in your hair
Back in the arms of your old lover
You were a pair of dice midair

I would help you leaving Dallas
I would help you pack or meet you at the door
I see you smiling leaving Dallas
This old shirt won't be patched anymore

(chorus)
