5:24

Music and Lyrics by Kevin Chambers

 

She walked out at 5:24

In a black dress and her hair to the floor

I could barely see in the fading light

But I'm sure she could

 

We got back home at 5:24

A half day gone, no less, no more

I could finally see with the rising sun

But she turned it out

 

She left on the 5:24

Some empty bags, a note on the door

And I swear I heard through the dark of night

The train pull away

 

On the 5:24

One way to the shore

It's all you understand anymore

On the 5:24

 

On the 5:24

One way to the shore

It's all you ever wanted to live for

On the 5:24

 

Booked a ride on the 5:24

I'd like to view the sea
