I was sad enough last Saturday,
I woke you to talk but you didn't have much to say.
You came to to two cherry cokes, came to to coke.
In the morning, when the wind is still warm,
And the rivers still coming and following.
The Astor hotel is black in the windows, black in the hall.

Since we left separately.
A country letter, straight from a widow: come in the nighttime,
To the back porch, throw rocks at my window,
and climb the terrace to the landing.
This house built cleverly for you and me.
(You sound like young love)

    General CommentThis song is about having a great idea in the middle of the night, before you can fall asleep, going to wake one of your friends up to tell them about it, and failing in your retelling completely. The idea in this case is that you are in love. The reference to Cherry Coke is expertly done. This song is brilliant.
