about

1998: The Things I Long For and the Things I Have Are Not the Same is a reminiscence about public telephone booths.

lyrics

Behind my cloaked eyes, you’re still within me here.
But when they open, you disappear.
So still, the things I long for and the things I have are not the same.

I could spend my nickels. I could spend my dimes.
Just listening to your breathe away my time on the telephone.
I see the things I long for and the things I have are not the same.

My days, my nights--they are the same.
Just a dream of you; just a long, lonely but still lovely dream of you.
I dreamed the things I long for and the things I have are not the same.
