I remember (Memory)
It was television (T.V.)
That was playing (Midnight)
On a stranger's Walkman (Headphones)
It was raining (Winter)
At the subway station (New York)
So I lingered (Waiting)
here in hesitation (Tension)

Because I was going away
And you were staying
I was going away
And you were staying
I was going away (Going away)
And you were staying (Going away)
You were swept away (Going away)
But unpersuaded

I remember (Recall)
A certain confrontation (Weapons)
You were scissors (Jagged)
I was paper (Fragile)
You were saying (Verbal)
There was nothing to say (Silent)
I was thinking (Mental)
That it didn't matter (Checkmate, voided, cancelled)

Because I was going away
And you were staying
I was going away
And you were staying
I was going away (Going away)
And you were staying (Going away)
You were swept away (Going away)
But unpersuaded

You weren't persuaded (This is closure)
