I feel something near
Is it misery or fear
It's a mystery unclear
What am I doing here

A breeze upon my face
Smells sweet as your embrace
A smile across my face
As I think about that place

And I feel like I know
What's going on
Like roses reach to
Kiss the morning dawn
I'm Washington tonight
And all is calm
I'm coming home to you
We're moving on

We rode upon a town
People all around
It's a good place to lay down
And I dream about you now

Holding pictures near
I think of you my dear
My body knows no fear
What am I doing here

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful...possibly the best on "Happy Ending"...but the meaning has perplexed me! I have no clue! Someone help!

    General CommentI think this song is abut a man who has gone away, maybe on a long business trip or something, and it dawns on him how much he loves a particular woman in his life. He's coming back to Washington to be with her.

    On the other hand, it could be some sort of reference to George Washington....although I really couldn'd figure that out if it was.

    Yes, it's a beautiful song. I love the little mandolin riff.
