lyrics

Worn out and abandoned
In the basement of a building
That he moved to
With his second wife:

Two wheels and a bike frame,
That has been there for decades,
Collecting dust. Long distance calls.

So I brought it to the shop and had it all tuned up.
To run like new down the avenue, like nothing ever happened to
The wheels when they were apart.

I’m mindful of the moments, the rare time we’re given
To exercise - ride side by side.
In some ways it’s a kindness,
A gift I’ve provided -
A starting gun, a second run,
To make up for lost time.
If there was ever such a crime.
A chance to prove what I thought I knew.

But in all honesty,
It’s a chance for him to know me.

But will he ride my bike when I’m gone?
Will it remind him that I’m far away from home?
Will he ride my bike when I’m gone?
Or will it reside back in the basement it was found?
