lyrics

It was a muggy white skies afternoon
She was emotional but held back rain
The sound of ivory was no where to be found
But in the room sound still remained

We pressed record to our hearts' desire
Through the wires our soundwaves went
In a flash lunchtime rolled around
Could we say it was time well spent?

We were drained and you could see it in each other's eyes
Our stamina had developed cracks
It was a good time to pause cause it was a lost cause
But alas, we had no snacks

All of us refused to live this way
Adam's driving we dearly missed
Was there a miracle place within walking distance
Yes, this place exists

Stroll down the road
Don't take it too slow
Under the muggy white skies glow

Maybe a mirage at a glance
But I'm willing to take the chance
Surely done with no sustenance

The journey lasted for days and days
But was stretched longer by the mind
In this labyrinth of lonely side streets
No sign of the place we sought to find

Suddenly Sean showed us a way
We were at the end of our plight
Once we struggled through a world of hunger
We found our oasis of light

Stroll down the road
Don't take it too slow
Under the muggy white skies glow

Maybe a mirage at a glance
But I'm willing to take the chance
Surely done with no sustenance
