Testo Sequel – Harry Chapin

Testo della canzone Sequel di Harry Chapin
So here she’s actin’ happy inside her handsome home
And me, I’m flyin’ in my taxi, takin’ tips and gettin’ stoned.

I got into town a little early.
Had eight hours to kill before the show.
First I thought about heading up north of the bay
Then I knew where I had to go.

I thought about taking a limousine
Or at least a fancy car.
But I ended up taking a taxi
‘Cause that’s how I got this far.

You see, ten years ago it was the front seat
Drivin’ stoned and feelin’ no pain.
Now here I am straight and sittin’ in the back
Hitting Sixteen Parkside Lane.

The driveway was the same as I remembered
And a butler came and answered the door.
He just shook his head when I asked for her
And said She doesn’t live here anymore.

But he offered to give me the address
That they were forwarding her letters to.
I just took it and returned to the cabbie
And said I got one more fare for you.

And so we rolled back into the city
Up to a five store old brownstone
I rang the bell that had her name on the mailbox.
The buzzer said somebody’s home.

And the look on her face as she opened the door
Was like an old joke told by a friend.
It’d taken ten more years but she’d found her smile
And I watched the corners start to bend.

And she said, How are you Harry?
Haven’t we played this scene before?
I said It’s so good to see you, Sue
Had to play it out just once more.
Play it out just once more.

She said I’ve heard you flying high on my radio
I answered It’s not all it seems
That’s when she laughed and she said, It’s better sometimes
When we don’t get to touch our dreams.
