about

This song is about being really, really bad at staying in touch with people, especially those who live in other cities/states/counties. It was important to me to say something along the lines of, "Just because I don't call as often as I should, doesn't mean I'm not thinking of you." But I think that excuse can only work for so long.

lyrics

If tomorrow came and I had gone away
would you talk, would you talk to my widow?
Would you say that I was an honest man
in my own way? Would you walk, would you walk
to my window? Would you stay?

You were on my mind
like a debt that I meant to pay
for a longer time than I would care to say

If the cold were creeping in and I was poor
would you walk, would you walk to my window,
to my door, and invite me out to play a late-night show?
And would you watch, would you watch,
even when the songs were slow?

You were on my mind
like a debt that I meant to pay
for a longer time than I would care to say

When the lights are down and silence fills the air
will you talk, will you talk to the darkness?
Will you care? Because I'm old enough to know that life's not fair,
but will you knock, will you knock?
Will you know that I'm still there?
