lyrics

Would you come along, if you got somewhere to go?
If my road was not your road, if I pull a heavy load,
a stone you don’t want dangling from your throat?
Would you hang it though?
If time allows, and I feel like yelling out
in a room of old thin walls with people in the halls
being such a quiet bird and all;
would you come to call?
If by some chance, no answers find these hands
when a question mark demands, would you cast a weary glance
where that palm and pine tree strangely stand
by the neighbor’s fence?
Nights on the bridge, the sky is warm as blood
would you sit with me above, feel the cold beams buzz
with all this passing under us
is it all too much?
