On a bus ride into town
I wondered out loud, "why am i going to town?"
And as i looked around
At the billboards and the stores

I thought, "why do i look around?"
And i kissed the filthy ground
First dry spot i found
And i didn't have to wonder why i was laying down

Before long i was too cold
Took a bus back to the station
I found a letter left by a pay phone
With no return contact

And it read like a horn blown by some sad angel
"bunny, it was me, it was me who let you down"
It was the shyest attempt i'd ever seen at conversation

If i didn't have you as my guide
I'd still wander lost in sinai
Counting the plates of cars from out-of-state
(how i could jump in their path as they hurry along)

You surround me
You're pretty but you're all i can see like a thick fog
If there was no way into god
I would never have laid in this grave of a body for so long

And bonner fair always came through
The first week of september
But it's already the 19th
And there's no sign of it

Yet, i have a hard time
Remembering all the things that i should remember
And a hard time
Forgetting the all things that i am supposed to forget

Oh christ, when you're ready to come back
And i think i'm ready for you to come back
But if you want to stay wherever exactly it is you are
That's okay too, it's really none of my business

If i didn't have you as my guide
I'd still be wandering lost in sinai
Or down by the tracks watching trains go by to remind me
There are places that aren't here

I had a well but all the water left
So i'll ask your forgiveness with every breath
If there was no way into god
I would never have laid in this grave of a body for so long, dear
