you were alone
I saw you from that second story window
no sign of Jerome
he burned your would'ves
right down to the cinders

so why'd you go
the party's full of friends
that you lost in the break up
did you think he'd show
& be impressed by a new dress
& your sister's make-up

you were alone
canvassing to save your reputation
sobbing to Simone
about how he up & left no explanation

& how you drove
out to his place to pound the door
& wake the neighbors
til they yelled he ain't home
now go & get some sleep
do us a favor

you were alone
hiding from the rain in the gazebo
shivered to the bone
& hoping for a taxi to retrieve you

well if you need a ride home
I'm on my way up to Orinda
& you can wear my coat
