So it goes
History shows
Deserts must expand
And camels sail like wooden ships
Like, women on the strand
There's sand on second avenue
And the wind blows like a train
Taxis line up like a string of pearls
Around the block again

And I remembered everything
And every windowpane
Every word came back to me
The way it used to be
Then I saw your face across the street
And my heart was home again

There's a bus that leaves at eight-fifteen
And another one at ten
Should I climb aboard, risk everything
And ride it to the end
Watch the hills like rollercoasters
Up against the sky
And wish that you were here by me
So close that I could die

You said love wrecks everything
And none of us survive
So I got over you last night
And I am still alive
Then I saw your face across the street
And my heart was home again

And I remembered everything
And every windowpane
Every word came back to me
The way it used to be
Then I saw your face across the street
And my heart was home...again

    General Commentthis song....it made me cry when I first heard it and I know if I hear it more I will continue to cry, because I lost the love of my life, and this song makes me think of him....

    General CommentBeautiful song. He broke up, and the memories rush back to him as he surveys the place he is about to leave.

    I thought I heard a song with lyrics a bit similar to this a long time ago, not sure about that.

    General CommentThis is such a powerful song. I think it's about a past relationship that he thought he was over...
    "So I got over you last night and I am still alive."
    But then he saw her again and he realized he wasn't over her. And his heart only feels at home when he's with her.
    "Then I saw your face across the street and my heart was home again."
    And just to mention the imagery in the first verse is so beautiful.
    This song is especially powerful if you can relate to the feeling of your heart feeling at home with someone. And he says "I saw your face across the street", he didn't even have to talk to her to realize how much me was still in love. <3
