He didn't understand it at the time
When his mom told him about the accident she was crying
He look the elevator down a long long way
Then he pet his cat I guess he dealt with it his own way
The school yard it looks so small
and his bicycle is shiny and new
He heard a voice coming through the fog
I want to ask the boy I knew why did you move
Why did you move to Seattle
It's always dark and it's always cold
Why did you move to Seattle
You didn't see the headlights coming through
On his bedroom wall there was a postcard from Seattle
But Billy and Scott moved out of the neighborhood
He wanted to show them the postcard from Seattle
With the Space Needle and the restaurant
and the bright lights coming through
