Five weeks in a prison'
I made no friends
There's more time to be done' but
I've got a week to spend
I didn't pay much attention
First time around'
But now you're hard not to notice'
Right here in my town
Where the stage of my old life
Meets the cast of the new
Tonights actors me and you
Each day is taking us closer'
While drawing the curtains to close
This far' or further' I need to know
Your increasingly long embraces'
Are they saying sorry or please
I don't know what's happening' help me
Through the streets' on the corners'
There's a scent in the air
I ask you out and I lead you
I know my way around here
There's a bench I remember'
And on the way there I find
That the movements you're making'
Are mirrored in mine
And your hand is held open'
Intentionally' or just what I want to see
I don't normally beg for assistance'
I rely on my own eyes to see'
But right now they make no sense to me'
Right now you make no sense to me
