You came to a stop
Like a truck spilling over in rush hour
With one last thought

We're in seperate rooms
But we both think the same thoughts
And we both wanted to call

Hear the penny drop
And make a dull sound on the pavement
And you can smell that it's just been raining

So you started to walk
But broke into a run after one block
This is the clearest that you've ever thought
But when you came to the door you stopped
