Sitting at Strawberry Bank
in the 5pm traffic jam
and I don't know if I'll ever get away,
I can't even turn around and bail
when someone's parked up my tail
so I just sit and stay. I sit and stay.
And I notice someone walk by
who's familiarity catches my eye
and I give a concentrating frown,
wondering where I saw her face
I quickly avert my gaze
and look in shame down at the ground.
But in my thoughts I haven't seen
the traffic light has turned green
and now I am the cause of delay,
yet I'm still lost in my mind
wondering what state caused memory to blind
but believe me, how I was, I cannot say,
but for now,
let me forget about any late night regret
for now I pull away.
