Lyrics

Massachusetts is a funny word when you’re drunk
I was in some kind of a funk
made me want to see you again.

I dialed you three times before it went through
Didn’t know what I would ask you
Just tried to remember the song
But you knew it all along
And you said;

Tie your troubles across my shoulders
And wrap your arms around this old heart of mine
Close your eyes now, pretend we’re no older
Just wrap your arms around this old heart of mine

Sold all your old LP’s
A down payment for an SUV
It’s all over now, baby blue.

It wasn’t much but it was all you had
The records, they were all scratched
You know I really miss U2
And maybe the Ocean Blue

Tie your troubles across my shoulders
Wrap your arms around this old heart of mine
Close your eyes now, pretend we’re no older
Just wrap your arms around this old heart of mine

Back in college when we were DJ’s
Elvis was Costello whenever we played
Red Shoes and we danced the night away
Oh, let’s go dancing!

Tie your troubles across my shoulders
Wrap your arms around this old heart of mine
Close your eyes now, pretend we’re no older
Just wrap your arms around this old heart of mine
