    I'm doing exactly what I wanted to
    And baby I don't even think about you anymore

    Just thought I'd drop you a line
    To let you know I was feeling fine
    Cause honey it's been a long long time
    Since you walked out my door

    It took me some time I must confess
    For a while there I was feeling less than my best
    I had to get out of town so I headed out west
    I ended up in Seattle

    I thought I'd start a brand new band
    I thought I might call it Lonelyland
    Things got a little out of hand
    I ended up hooked on heroin

    So I ended up moving back over to Germany
    Living with the folks baggin grocery's
    But the time I had was mostly free
    So I spent most of it drinking

    I got myself in a jam or two
    I guess it's what I had to do
    Late at night I'd still think of you
    And it felt like I was drowning

    Till I met this girl at a discotheque
    She was a dancer but not what you'd expect
    She taught ballet and she was half-Czech half Chinese

    But after she decided not to have the baby
    She said she was gonna move back to Czechoslovakia maybe
    By then I didn't really care I was either half drunk or half crazy

    I got arrested once but never convicted
    My parents eventually had me evicted
    I tried your number but it'd been disconnected
    I guess I should've known

    I heard you got married and you moved away
    I called your folks but where they wouldn't say
    They said it's probably better that way so I just let it be

    I moved back to Austin bout a year ago
    I drive a schoolbus I don't drink no more
    I go out every once in a while and see a show but mostly I just watch TV

    So I don't know where I'm gonna send this letter
    I doubt things are ever going to get much better
    It seems like life is just one big whatever anyway

    I just thought I'd drop you a line
    Lie and say I was doing fine
    Cause baby it's been a long long time
