Providence
Where were you when my dreams came true

And my ship finally came in

I was flying head in the clouds

And you were back in Providence



I crawled out of my ark of doubt

Stepped up to claim my prize

A fingerprint in the mantelpiece paint

A letter of just three lines



I played hard I played hard to get

And hard to understand

And every night was a fight to the death

And every day was planned



Where were you when I finally knew

The truth that you'd always known

No matter how far you travel away

You always end up home



Where was this place where I finally fell to grace

And found you'd faded out



Now all the rain that's fallen on me

The sun that's worn me down

But I'm still walking in this same old pair of shoes

I'm walking on the same ground



Oh yes I know nobody chooses anybody

And no one means to lie

But when the weather changes you turn into strangers

Learning how to say goodbye



I'm writing from this town where I let you down once too often

But I'm thinking of that other lucky place
