lyrics

Heat is Streaming through the pipes of your motorbike
As you make your way to places much warmer than where I stay
You lay on rooftops, your hands don’t stop ’til the rain comes down
Or the sun makes its way ’round behind the bend of the horizon

You are strong in ways that I’ll never be
But oh, I guess you might say the same about me

I tend the tables and read the labels of all the fine
Tequilas and wine that line the shelves of the restaurant
I pace the floorboards and take the orders and clear the plates
Wipe up the salt that’s scattered about and I ask them to please come again

You are strong in ways that I’ll never be
But oh, I guess you might say the same about me
Oh, our hearts ache for places that we’ve never been
But oh, they also ache for the people that we haven’t seen
In awhile

I fold my apron, my smile is tapering to a line
And I wait for a sign that’ll tell me it’s time for me to leave here
The road is winding and I am finding that I am lost
A single light pierces the night and I find myself looking to see who is there

You are strong in ways that I’ll never be
But oh, I guess you might say the same about me
Oh, our hearts ache for places that we’ve never been
But oh, they also ache for the people that we haven’t seen
In awhile
