Music – Arriving

Give a little for…
You have to give it for timing
Words like notes ring for you
In the distance for nineteen days in sullen ways – trumpet “Arriving”
All they ask of me…
“How could this be”?

Autumn has never seen another quite like this
Slip into a stranger

My dear stranger, dare I ask

Would you recognize my voice calling out your name?
Or do you know?
Well, I know, I surely would
And see the lightning that would come before your voice for this sleepless me
Do you recognize?
Do you recognize?

And as the last clock tells the time
One more look as the hands unwind
The softest reminder of losing you
Your sister’s dissapointed look – she said, “Best laid plans, weren’t they arriving”?

No one’s ever seen another fall like this
Slip into a stranger

My dear stranger, dare I ask

Would you recognize my voice calling out your name?
Or do you know?
Well, I know, I surely would
And see the lightning that would come before your voice for this sleepless me
But tonight
But tonight!

Fall on down
Fall on down
Fall on down
Fall on down

In the night the way their turning on the satellites
They wish the daytime had stars in the daylight
But it’s the twilight’s fire in the atmosphere
It slips beneath us and finally makes a note say no way

My dear stranger
My dear stranger, I wanna follow you
My dear stranger, I wanna follow you
My dear stranger
