She drifted from some minor festival.
Just a thousand weekend warriors in a muddy field.
Funny thing, the innocence of the lonely.

Like two angels (in white innocence).
The other's tapping at my car window
Trying to see if she's some child of the nineties:
She was white innocence.
A perfect hole was in her stocking:
I could have moved among her waterfalls:
Did she see warm safety in my numbers
Felt like I was taking her to market now
Funny thing, the distance of the lonely.
White innocence.
She pressed the button, lowered the window:
A frost from nowhere seemed to lick her fingers:
Obvious, she was headed nowhere special:
I was doing some, some watching, some waiting:
There was the promise of early bed-time.
Think I was sending out low-voltage electricity:
She turned and looked at me in white innocence
She rested one small hand for a second on my knee:
Funny thing, the wisdom of the lonely.
Away you go now.
