Back in the day, I thought all intros had to be at least a minute long. Because, you know, that's how it was in the 80's.

This isn't an 80's song.


She wakes up in the night time with her head on a bottle. She can't remember where the hell she's been. She looks for some comfort but she can't find her friends. She gets as close to her home as she can.

The night isn't pretty with the thunder that's rumbling. It threatens to rain on us and it pours. She's cold. It isn't pretty with her arms held so tightly as she shivers on the porch by my door.

While she wanders through my mind and she says she was insane, she asks me if it's right. "Let's start again?"

It's late in the year, and the roads are white with snow, as I stare out the window of my room. She sits so quiet. It's like, she don't wanna be here. It's like she's trying to stare down the moon.

While she wanders through my mind, and I look at her in vain, she says it wasn't right to start again.

Well, she wanders through my mind but nothing is the same. And we know it's never right.

Let's start again.
