I’ll Never Love Another (Dashboard Fantasy)
by Marty Nelson
In the dark the screen glows
Like a wave crest under the moon.
My room is cold and I can’t tell the difference
Between my skin and the floor.
It’s been so long since I saw your eyes.
It’s been so long now my nights go by alone
At the dashboard fantasy
Chasing Aether images
Finding I can’t ride the glow
Knowing I’ll never love another.
Oh . . . oh . . . oh.
I’ll never love another.
I can’t stand the silence.
I can’t taste beyond this stale dead air.
So I rise and walk the streets
Like a fool on a dare.
Soon the shadows dance to mock my tears
As the trash from the alleys call . . .
How’s the  dashboard fantasy?
Chasing Aether images?
Finding you can’t ride the glow
Knowing you’ll never love another.
You’ve seen the best. Now see the worst beneath the surface.
You’ve kissed the breast of the earth, now where’s the sweetness?
Come see behind your eyes.
Come here beyond your fears.
Come see the limits that can tempt you to test tomorrow.
I backed out of the alley
And returned to the avenue.
Shaking hard
To clear the nightmare away.
So many turns on these city streets.
Which one took you away . . .
To your dashboard fantasy
Chasing your Aether images
Feeling you couldn’t just ride the glow knowing
I’d never love another.
I’d never love another.
No, I’ll never love another.
