lyrics

Stuck inside,
twelve more hours,
and I don't speak Thai
Usually I rely on my wit
to get me by but not this time
Humor translates poorly for me
And I've tried but I cannot
slip past security
So visas cost about
eleven American
But my debit card is at home
in the top right dresser drawer
I feel alone for the first time in years
My bags are in their place,
tucked away, locked up in transit
You caught a train;
you made your way across town
Where you thought that I would be
but I let you down
I'm catching a plane today
And I'm missing my chance to cross paths
Another trip through Bangkok goes to waste
International airspace
is no place for me to stay
Had things turned out differently
This might have been a love story
We're all racing to locations
one to another
Hoping to meet other
brilliant novas
Sometimes we hit;
sometimes we miss
It's all the same
