My Magic Cardboard Carpet

(v1)
I read the morning papers
Most people throw away
A day late doesn't matter
The news is all the same
I only track obituaries
Looking for my name

(v2)
I dream sometimes I see you
Still trembling near the door
Your dear face wet with questions
And the choice was either/or
I once had all I wanted
But thought I needed more

Chorus
My magic cardboard carpet
Takes me flying back to you
Another time, another place
Before my steep descent from grace

(3)
I shiver in a blanket
Someone handed me last night
And fumble for a roll-your-own
I have no match to light
Instead I'll drink to memories
From the brown bag at my side

Chorus
My magic cardboard carpet
Takes me flying back to you
Another time, another place
Before my steep descent from grace

Bridge
I've ceased to wonder
How I once held what I've lost
And why I now sleep under
All the bridges that I crossed

Chorus
My magic cardboard carpet
Takes me flying back to you
Another time, another place
Before my steep descent from grace
