lyrics

I heard the water call my name.
I didn't pay much mind.
I can't remember when it started
until I had to leave it all behind.

I don't know when I'm coming home
when I don't even know what day it is.
I don't know when I'm coming home
I think I feel alright,
I think we should stay another night.

West Virginia, I'm so glad.
You make me happy when I'm sad.
West Virginia. It'll drive you mad,
'cause you'll be chasing all the
best of times you've ever had.

I traveled time there with a con man.
He told me of his plans to make a film.
He had an interest in connections
and he shared a brightly colored point of view.

My body's feeling sore today
'cause Benny dragged us through the lake.
And three Arenas saw it happen
seeing how much the both of us could take.

I don't know when I'm coming home
when I don't even know what day it is.
I don't know when I'm coming home
I feel alright,
I think we should stay another night.

West Virginia, I'm so glad.
You make me happy when I'm sad.
West Virginia. It'll drive you mad,
'cause you'll be chasing all the
best of times you've ever had.

We're on the float with Captain Beezer
and Charles is asleep right on the floor.
Cast the rocks and catch a trophy,
the kind that keeps you coming back for more.

I heard the water call my name.
It whispered in my ear.
You know you'll want me once I'm gone.
Remember that when you are leaving hear.
