lyrics & music by Cindy Emch
arranged, produced, & engineered by Sean Malroy


Walking long on shaded trees
You laughed and fell and skinned your knee
A child's hurt on a woman's frame
You marked that town with flesh that day
And in the park and on the
We played those games with songs to live

Only one night
And you went away
One night
And no one stays

You traveled north to find our fun
I'd run away and kidnapped the sun
We drove around on Cedar Street
We smoked and talked of our doomed fate
Down by the river with factories large
I saw your dreams breaking your heart

When you passed out on the floor
I knew it wasn't our time no more
I got some help and I dragged you home
Our time was past our time was now
Our time could run circles around

But times change and I'm running back
I find you here and there alike
I fall in love when'er you laugh
We're falling down it's in our grasp
So on the bridge and in the park
We learned to find us in the dark

One night
Then you went away
One night
And no one stays
