299 : 2/3/99 : Missed Your Bus

I can see him standin’ up there the day you missed your bus
You started running and saying o shit o shit
And he looked down on you; smoked his cigarette
He must have known how say you were he must have known it

You were just as sad as the day he left you
They day he broke your heart and left you all alone
Ain’t it hard how a little misfortune
Seems to make it seem okay for them to cast the first stone

He could hear you coughing from running
Up there on his balcony above it all
He must have known you’d miss your bus
He knows the way they leave and never call

He knows what it’s like to run hopeless
After what you need but can never catch
He knows what it’s like to be watched from above
As you have to start over and over from scratch
