On my way home the rain just washed us up
onto your front door where we talked
you went up the stairs as I watched you walk
I watched you walk.
And on the bus before that they looked at us
Some of them happy, some of them lost
Some of them liked us, some of them not
Yah, some of them not.
And the day before that was the one we met
you were with sisters, I was with friends
I was so lonely, you were so mad
Yah, you were so mad
You were so mad.

And we did it for the lovers who were blind
and we did it for the others left behind
with each other, we recovered in the night

And the week before that I drove all day
to Capital City
looking for a van for me
a van for me
for you and me.

    General CommentIt is about the chance in life.We were living our ordinary lives -just like going to buy a van- before we met.After you filled my life like the inside of the van.

    General CommentI love this song. So optimistic. It's like he knew ne needed a van, but he didn't know why until he met her. Then he knew.
