Last night I thought of you on the subway
I thought of you as the rain soaked my feet
I thought of you as I walked alone
Down the unmowed road
I thought things I don't think I should repeat
Last night was quiet in my neighborhood
You could hear people in their houses watching TV
Their living rooms glowed blue
And it made me think of you
I thought about why you weren't here with me
But had I asked if you would come home with me
Would you have said yes, or would you have said no?
Better you be there than I scare you away
That was the decision I made
Last night, standing outside your mother's house
Your cold breath glowed in the streetlight
My hands and thoughts roamed
As to, should I take you home?
An opportunity might have been blown
Last night I remember forcing my door open with my shoulder
With strength I never even knew I had
And I thought:
Would I be as strong if you had come along?
And would I have wanted inside so bad?
But had I asked if you would come home with me
Would you have said yes, or would you have said no?
Better you be there than I scare you away
That was the decision I made, last night
I've been told nothing in this world is certain
But that and a bottle of scotch
And my mind is still burdened
Last night, when I held you at your door
I felt like I had the strength of ten x ten x ten x ten
And there was this light outside
And considering the time of night
I might have asked that extra question, given that moment again
Last night was quiet in my neighborhood
You could hear people in their houses watching TV
Their living rooms glowed blue, and it made me think of you
