lyrics

I was on a walk tonight out late
I noticed your pick-up's license plate
A horseless carriage from Colorado
The home state of a pretty girl I used to know

We met in a computer lab where I introduced myself
She was pre-med, I was nervous as hell
Her name was Julie
Could yours be the same?
I'm leaving this note on your windshield
Just in case

Julie...

We were both shy and a little strange
We both liked spiders and good-guy / bad-guy trains
Her lips were chapped, her shoulders, burned
We moved in together just after the winter term

Julie always left a little light on for me
She said that there was little that she would need
But still I noticed all the times she clenched her teeth
And the nights when she barely touched her drink

Julie...
All along, there was something wrong

(Some women are patient
Some are too pretty to be)
But woe is the beau with neither
There ain't a fellow alive
With a pillow so wide
Just waiting for my beautiful love
My restless lady, the only girl I think of

So perhaps you're not the one I held so dear
Why should I believe she would ever return here?
But I just can't stop looking for her along these streets
I just keep looking, looking around
for Julie
Julie...
All along, there was something wrong
