lyrics

The way you remember a feeling after it’s no longer there
is the way that a match looks when it’s black,
after the flame’s disappeared.

It started when I drove through Kansas.
Missouri filled my heart with stones.
And when I got to Nashville it started to rain.
I could feel it seep into my bones.

Drove all night from Atlanta,
crossed the bridge, and I know
it’s not home, but
it’s still New York City,
and there’s always a place to go.

Now I’m back in this city, I’m standing on Avenue B.
The cabs all turn over as it starts to rain.
Gallup feels so far from me.

Being back here feels different
but it all looks exactly the same.
The subway still runs
through this city, like blood,
with metal and concrete for veins.
