When the cafe doors exploded, I reacted, too
Reacted to you
Cast into that sunny morning, I was coming too
But now I'm coming too
Papers in the wind a-waltzing, I was dancing, too
My mind danced to you
Lifted up on wings of strangers, saw a face and knew
Then I saw you - red, white and bruised
Silent for a moment, then singing, I thought I could hear
Singing turned to sirens as ringing returned to my ears
And the sirens called me back to their miserable rock
While you're following the sparrow, I can only follow the clock

    General CommentThis makes me think of the opening scene in "Children of Men" when the cafe explodes. It's very literal, but I'm not very deep.
