When you move out of this town, oh, please promise me
That you will not forget to keep in touch
Maybe call once a week or every other month
Or twice a year; I swear that you won't have to call much
Just call enough so I will hear the sound of your voice
So you don't fade away like all those other boys

When you move out of this town, oh, please promise me
That you will not forget that I exist
Across state lines and country bounds I know you will be busy
But please, oh please, oh please promise me this
But if you just let go of me and let me fade away
Well, that is fine, cause for me at least you will stay

Cause it's a far fetched wish you'll see
Oh what a far fetched thing it'll be
Cause you'll be too caught up in the present tense
For little old past tense me

When you move out of this town, oh, I promise you
That you will show up sometimes in my dreams
And you'll be doing something that you always do
Like strumming your guitar on crumpled sheets
And I will open up my eyes hoping to feel you there
But I will only feel the cold bite of night air

Cause when you move out of this town I will help you pack
And as we hug I'll try hard not to cry
And I will make you promise e these stupid little things
But there is no such thing as a good goodbye
And I will say I love you like I've said it times before
I'll wave til I can't see your car anymore

Cause I just want you to be happy
Oh, I just know that you'll be happy
And you'll be laughing, smiling in the present tense
You won't have time for boring past tense me
