how it felt

lyrics

There's always a moment we’d fritter away,
talking soft, our feet held aloft
by the table’s four legs or the chairs that we'd drag
to the edge of that fire that burned
Maybe silence could fill up a room
like we’d wished for as young lovers
Ending as soon as we made for the exit
Clutching a bus map and
Caught in a snare of some cosmic design
We were both willing and
Facing the chilling walk to the corner
Passengers milling and waiting on number 9
The crosstown’s just fine with us
And that was the first time, riding the number 9 bus

There's always a moment when she breaks the spell
Laughing at jokes that she tells herself
And I realize that I don't know her that well
But it don't matter much anyway
Maybe she's lost in a map of her own
Tracing the lines from the edge of the town
To the moment that we share on a bus to nowhere
With some luck, we’ll find our way home
We were both willing
and facing the chilling walk to the corner
Passengers milling and waiting on the number 9
The crosstown’s just fine with us
And that was the first time, riding the number 9 bus

There's always a moment when I look away
My words won’t last my thoughts astray
The clock turns too fast and the end of the day
sets on the wide road ahead
Maybe big love can fill up big hearts
Tomorrow’s can come with their stops and starts
And spring can dance once the winter departs
And the cold wind stops blowing our way
We were both willing and
Facing the chilling walk to the corner
Passengers milling and they’re waiting on number 9
The crosstown’s just fine with us
And that was the first time, riding the number 9 bus
And that was the first time, riding the number 9 bus
