When we pile into a van and set out for some foreign land
Panning for a market share with tempered hope & innocence
I'll be picturing your face, March 25th 2008
The way it beamed up at the stage made a mediocre band sound great

The guys turned down your invitation to an after-hours dive
They were busy passing flyers and had to rest up for their drive
But you shut up the Sunset Strip with just your voice and mandolin
And I'd have drowned in my desire, but I was used to it by then

I'll be picturing your face, rolling down the interstate
Blessed with enough years & wisdom to make my pointless plans take shape
I won't swerve from my destiny when it stakes its claim on me
But when I'm standing on that stage, I wonder just whose face I'll see

I'm sorry you're not in this story. I wish you'd mark it up in red
I wish it were a work in progress. I wish I wouldn't finish it
Could I get an "A" for effort? Am I getting warmer yet?
You've never been around to answer so I'll write it again
