Attic View

(Polly Edwards)

(Click here to see it on YouTube!)


This was written one evening in my attic, looking out the window, watching the sun set, and thinking about someone I haven't talked to in a very long time.

Up above the hydro wires
I watch time go flying past my windowpane
The attic floor is rich with fire
From the sunset drying out the afternoon rain

I heard that you flew in last night
So I've been sitting here watching the sidewalk below all day
Hoping against hope that you'll come around
Though the truth is, I'm not sure what I want to say

I know you don't want to see me
But a friend of a friend told me that you'd be in town
Now I know you're out there somewhere in this city
I'm thinking about how you're probably not thinking about me right now

Getting late, I tell myself
I should go take a walk with what's left of my pride
Sick of staring at these walls
Wishing you'd come find me where I hide

Later still, I tell myself again
Another hour's not worth it to settle a score
So tell me why I'm still here
And why I'd give anything to find you at my door

I know you're out there somewhere in this city
Maybe it's your hotel lights I can see in the distance downtown
I meant to get over you, I know it ain't pretty
I'm thinking about how you're probably not thinking about me right now

Oh, I laughed and I left
I did everything I should do
Oh, so how the hell
Did I end up missing you?

I know it's not very likely
But it's not impossible you'll go out walking around
If you pass our old place, I hope you just might be
Thinking about how I'm probably not thinking about you right now
And maybe if we're both thinking it
We'll be together somehow
