55

I remember flooded streets
And the sky was dark with rain
I remember all your words
And the music of your name
But if we met again I wouldn't recognize your face
Only the blueprint of your eyes remains

Fifty-five minutes our paths were crossing
You and I found something in common
A hometown, and a smile, and a knowing gaze
But it wasn't the time or the place
Fifty-five days I've all but forgotten
But inside my mind there's a carved out portion that is saved for a piece in a fifty-five minute shape

I hope that all is well
In the months that intervened
That your life is full of love
And you have all that you need
If I returned today
I hope you would not be there
That you're out chasing your dream
Or just the next step on the stair

Fifty-five minutes our paths were crossing
You and I found something in common
A hometown, and a smile, and a knowing gaze
But it wasn't the time or the place
Fifty-five days I've all but forgotten
But inside my mind there's a carved out portion that is saved for a piece in a fifty-five minute shape

It won't ever fall in place
And that's okay
I've gone away
Gone away

Fifty-five minutes our paths were crossing
You and I found something in common
Was it a hometown, or a smile, or a knowing gaze
In fifty-five days I've all but forgotten
But inside my mind there's a carved out portion that is saved for a piece in a fifty-five minute shape
