Lyrics

I was grown in backyards under lines of clothes.
Linen sheets in long rows, I thought they were ghosts.
And they were, in my mind.
You were made by main drags somewhere down the street.
You thought my lips were honey, and my hair was winter wheat.
And it was, in your mind.

Now I’m on my way by Greyhound Bus. I have come for you because
I thought you were all there was. And you are.

You came back from school with anger in your eyes,
So I gave you a kiss that I hoped would save your life.
And it did, in your mind.
In the field, the sun hung colors from above.
I thought holding you was the first time I made love.
And it was, in my mind.

Now I’m on my way by Greyhound Bus. I have come for you because
I thought you were all there was. And you are.

All my flying days are gone to dust. In these times, I’ve come to trust
That those days were made for us, and they are still. They are still.

When the bus comes, shoo the pigeons from your toes.
We’ll meet in the moonlight, just like long lost ghosts.
Now I’m on my way by Greyhound Bus. I have come for you because
I thought you were all there was. And you are. And you are. And you are.
