Let's Get Lost

The first time I heard Chet Baker
i was driving in my car on my way to meet a boy
who wasn't you,
but it was you who told me who Baker was,
and it was you I thought about as these songs
were sung,
and it was he who knew
that it wasn't him I was thinking of
as i drove around
listening to these sad songs
about the thrill being gone
and not knowing what love was
and now just yesterday i was doing the same
 minus the boy but with a man of sixty-six
on our way to the grocery store
just helping an old friend out
but thinking of a new love.
