Oh, Illinois!

This song is by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and appears on the album Pocket Symphonies for Lonesome Subway Cars (2001).

So nice to hear from you
It's been a while it's true
Still gluing up your stamps I see
Never even used the last ones you sent me
What do you do with your days
Other than write to boys far away
You work two jobs and your apartment sucks
Your new boyfriend's a lousy fuck
Thanks for the tape the photos are swell
I guess chicago's treating you well

Say you've got my picture on the wall
Sent your number for me to call
I guess I would if I could afford to
'Cause I know that you're bored too
I guess the only thing that's stopping me
Is once that we got talking
I'm afraid of what we might start to say
And I don't want to start missing you again
