about

One of the oldest and simplest songs in our catalog, written in mid-90s. Ari was thinking of his first girlfriend when he wrote this, though he also wanted to avoid it being too romantic and vague/open enough to be interpreted as a completely different story, like a parent-child or reconciliation with God.

lyrics

I, I couldn't see you
When my height was way too low
I, I couldn't feel you
When my heart didn't have a soul

Did you see me when I was crying
Did you see me when I was looking, oh looking for you

Down the country road where leaves were dancing
The boy was waiting for the coming
With one hand on his heart and the other to hold his fears
The tears flow where no one can see

There's a fire in a misplaced fireplace
How am I supposed to know?
Let me tell you about my secrets, how can we keep the faith?
And how am I supposed to know that I know?

Did you see me when I was crying
Is that why your song came through to me

Down the country road where leaves were dancing
The boy was waiting for the coming
With one hand on his heart and the other to hold his fears
The tears flow where no one can see

Down the country road where leaves were dancing
I was waiting for your coming
With one hand on my heart, and the other to hold my fears

Down the country road where leaves were dancing
I was waiting for your coming, your coming home
With one hand on my heart and the other to hold my fears
Oh I'm so glad to find me in you
