"Love Is Dancing on My Finger"


For the girl who asked and loves this song.

"San Francisco"

I, I know what you did
Like a boy of summer gives his first kiss
Love, is dancing on my finger
He got to the heart of the matter and lingered
Now I'm walking with the living
I always liked Steinbeck and those old men whistling

We're back, we're back in San Francisco
We're back and you tell me I'm home
Talking in the Mission
Over coffee this is my utopia
Man, I'll be your lady
As the ocean rises, the sun is fading

We're back, we're back in San Francisco
We're back, we're back in San Francisco
We're back, we're back in San Francisco

And now I feel the ever after
Over red wine on the eve of summer
The buzz, the buzz of the city
As we settle in it's majestyI, I know what you did
Like a boy of summer gives his first kiss

We're back, we're back in San Francisco
We're back and you tell me I'm home

You tell me I am home
You tell me I am home
You tell me I am home
Back in San Francisco

And I know what you did in San Francisco
I know what you did in San Francisc
San Francisco

Vanessa Carlton
I had a fight I shouldn’t have had. About nothing really. I get like that. When I expect you to get me so perfect no words should be necessary. So I end up saying too many, too much, more than I meant to, more than I mean; an abiding fault. You know I will be back. These journeys have to be gone on. With you I’m walking with the living. I will be back.

I miss hearing you say, “Silly.” Say I was “silly.” It was.

Don't like VC. Too white up-town pop, too nas'ly. But this particularly song, I like.
