a dozen roses in the car
and i don't know where you are
maybe i don't know what i'm doing
you're moving like a movie
you still move me
among the other ones
and twos and threes and twenty-threes
got to keep my conscience clean
but that hurricane what's-her-name
mentality was not for me
and never could be
cause it surely brings bitter things
and misery

and i say
heaven hits me hard
in with the new
heaven hits me hardly
in with the news
whatever gets me started
in with the noose
have you ever had a heaven here
and was it clear?

cause i just wrote a letter
a confession down the ladder
that things could be so much better
and through follow the leader
i met her and then another end
and usually a grudge
but i loved so much
the way we touched and psuedo-kissed
oh i already miss you singing like this
over the phone
every now and every then i tend to pretend
i'm not alone

i'm not alone
i'm not so alone

static made old radio

now i know
static made old radio

heaven hits me hard
in with the new
heaven hits me hardly
in with the news
whatever gets me started
in with the noose
have you ever had a heaven here
and was it clearly better?

    General Commentit sounds like he ended a relationship with somebody, and he's dating all these other girls but realizes that he really just wants the first one??

    General CommentHe's sitting there wondering if he should try to make it work out with her again. But to have a serious relationship, the love he wants, he has to get rid of the feelings he has for others. Come to turns with his previous relationships and relationships that he may have wanted to happen. They were together once, and he wants to try again. He's sitting there. What now?

    General Commentwhile at a city on film show last fall, bob ended the set with an ambient, mostly a cappella cover of his own song.

    i've not been more amazed in my life.
    oh the tingles.
