Something Else

© 2005 Midnight Island Music

Do you remember when we met
We sat and watched your eggs benedict set
In some hip diner they talked about
With scarcely any breath to speak
We made our coffee last more than a week
The waiters waiting to cash out
What's mine is mine is mostly yours
Climb out the window and lock the doors
We don't need a map for the place we're bound to find
What's past and gone has left us now
Can't take it with us anyhow
But we've still got time to leave something else behind

Do you remember years ago
I pushed you off the sidewalk into the snow
A simple gesture, but from the heart
I've spent a lot of time since then
Trying to find a sidewalk to do it again
You know I loved you from the start
What's mine is mine is mostly yours
Climb out the window and lock the doors
We don't need a map for the place we're bound to find
What's past and gone has left us now
Can't take it with us anyhow
But we've still got time to leave something else behind

Do you remember just today
Leaving the house in the usual way
The garbage put out beside the curb
I turn my head and there I see
The very girl who was smiling at me
As waiters left us undisturbed
What's mine is mine is mostly yours
Climb out the window and lock the doors
We don't need a map for the place we're bound to find
What's past and gone has left us now
Can't take it with us anyhow
But we've still got time to leave something else behind
