lyrics

Plain speech at the top of the red house
Plain speech, lit shoes in the courtyard
Plain speech, pusher on a platform
Plain speech

The voice of the vendor at the bike shop
"Throw the tire on the dish"
You, you helped me onto the fixie
And you, you held your arms to the sides

And just for a moment, just for a moment
I stopped the aching muscle from to carry me away
But not with this body, not with this body
I got a date in Austin with a friend from the bay

Well it's in my nature to sit and watch the folding bridge
Yea it's in my nature to reach my arms across the ridge
Now I know, now I know

And after I saw you by the bike shop
You touched your thumb to my cheek
And I carried, yea I carried back to the railing
And you, you pedaled off to the east

And just for a moment, just for a moment
I stopped the aching muscle from to carry me away
But not with this body, not with this body
I know that I am leaving but just hold me for a moment
