From the Top of the Stairs

from by Vinny Vegas



Counting the hours I've spent of my life in the seat
the crease in the cushion, forming to me
making my way to the island through Kings and Queens
Both counties and boroughs are passing with jingling keys
Finding myself 4 hours away
and though it's familiar, it's not quite the same
the steady line files, I settle in place
to play my role when...

I wake up in a bed I don't fit anymore
and I look outside, to the lights coming in through the door
slowly my legs start to walk, to the hall when they suddenly stop

From the top of the stairs, I saw things that shape me still to this day
like the lights that line the edge of the fireplace
where white drapes meet blue velvet couches

Now my time here is long gone
and it can't be like it was
now my body's here,
but I'm not

on the day they turn to you
you'll just hope you can be there
you will, you will, cause someone would for you


from The Big White Whale, track released November 5, 2013
