Abuse me and confuse me
But never, never, never use me
Ah, you leave me so tired
So utterly uninspired

Thunder Bay was a drag, baby
Thunder Bay was a drag, baby

Upon the gravel and the dust
If I don't move, I will rust
You're a faint recurring melody
I can't seem to recall

In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you
In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you

The sun shines off the power lines
And the trees they wave me on
There's a black cloud of happiness
I can't finish what I've begun

We hit Duluth on a jag, baby
We hit Duluth on a jag, baby

I grab my coat
My hat and my paperback
From the corner of my eyes
I see you smile

In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you
In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you

I hear what they're saying
There's no use in praying
So I'll just slip away

In my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you
You're in my mind, in my soul
I never really loved you
