THE WALKMEN "ON THE WATER"

Since I find sleep elusive this evening [morning?], I had intended to post the long, dreary blow-by-blow of the last 2 weeks or so. But then I decided that I couldn't possibly expose my sadness in this forum. Plus, you'd all think I was fucking mad. So instead, here's a song I hold near and dear to my heart, as it were.



All the windows are glowing
The branches bending low
The skyline is swinging
Rocking back and forth
Walking down this dirt road
Watching at the sky
It’s all I can do
It’s all I can do

All the years keep rolling
The decades flying by
But…
The days are long
So here’s one to the pigeons
And the tugboats on the river
Here’s one to you
For walking in my shoes

Oh you know I’d never leave you
No matter how hard I try
You know I’d never leave you
And that’s just how it is

But Molly
She’s like you
Oh the static
That is in everyone but you
Oh it’s funny
To think it through
Everybody
That is deep
Everyone but you
