San Diego Serenade - Tom Waits

    I never saw the morning 'til I stayed up all night
    I never saw the sunshine 'til you turned out the light
    I never saw my hometown until I stayed away too long
    I never heard the melody, until I needed a song.

    I never saw the white line, 'til I was leaving you behind
    I never knew I needed you 'til I was caught up in a bind
    I never spoke 'I love you' 'til I cursed you in vain,
    I never felt my heartstrings until I nearly went insane.

    I never saw the east coast 'til I move to the west
    I never saw the moonlight until it shone off your breast
    I never saw your heart 'til someone tried to steal, tried to steal it away
    I never saw your tears until they rolled down your face.
