My hand is folded on this old glass knob
that I’ve heard rattle and turn so many times
I just need to linger on this tread a minute more
while I emblazon this place upon my mind

Last thing to do is to step on through
Hands at this door are pulling me forward

Pulling me forward, pulling me forward
Hands keep pulling me forward
No change in my face, gonna exit with grace
These hands are pulling me forward

Funny how habits die hard or not at all
Catch myself listening for the 5 AM train
or reaching for the screen door when I feel the urge to roam
strong as the ozone in the August rain

Give me the mornings in the gold summer light
Give me the shade of a water oak
When dark is falling we will sit and watch the nights
burn down to embers and smoke

It’s time to go, but I need you to hold my hand,
keep pulling me forward
