lyrics

Sitting at a Red Light
Kent Agee

There’s a laughing girl behind the wheel in my peripheral vision
The radio is dancing through her hair
There’s a black man on the corner yelling like he’s on a mission
With his head back and his arms up in the air
The lights crawl through their cycles, everybody talks to no-one
And the anger’s barely sleeping in their hands
All this movement sitting still would surely stop if looks could kill
The light is green, I think she’s seen me, here’s my chance

Hey you, in the rusted out Nova
With “just do it” stuck on the glass
Hey I think that maybe I know ya
But its hard to tell, cause everything’s changing so fast

There’s a rattle in the trunk and there’s a trash-truck up ahead
And I’m not really sure how I got here at all
I can remember getting in, I turned the key and took a left
It’s automatic now, I just hold on and fall
Her car’s another kind of blue, it prob’ly isn’t safe to drive
But everybody knows there are no accidents
It’s way to warm for late October, I think she’s pulling over
Maybe this is where the trip starts making sense

(chorus)

There’s a face in every back seat there’s a wasp on every dashboard
Let me out, let me in, let me out, let me in
There’s no street just intersections, the illusion of connections
There you are, here I am, where’ve you been...

(chorus)
