Jessie was the shy one
Kept to himself
Was carried by the breeze
So people seem surprised
When he was found face down
Washed up in the reeds
His note was folded three times
It simply read, this world is not for me

But what is he had been
The one to raise his hand?
Who would he be now?
Would he understand?
His moment’s gone and he
Won’t get a next one
Who would he be?
Where would we be?

Jenny was a nice girl
She set her sights
Above the petty things
The car was soaked in whisky
It’s not her fault
He took away her wings

But what if she had been
The one to raise her hand?
Who would she be now?
Would she understand?
Her moment’s gone and she
Won’t get a next one
Who would we be?
Where would we be if
She were here today
