St Paul

Copyright 2013
Dan Pelletier

He lived in New York and she was from Austin
And the distance between them was cruel and exhausting
But sometimes they wondered if they might have it all
If she was Minneapolis and he was St. Paul

She played the piano and he played it too
They tried duets in four hand, but it just wouldn’t do
They might have made music and they might have gone far
If he’d learned the fiddle, or she played guitar

What if it was just a step away to happiness
Just a hair’s breadth away from all the best
And if you knew that it could change your life could you change at all
If happiness was in Minneapolis and you were in St Paul

He lived in 3B and she lived in 4A
Literally, a stone’s throw away
When they later wondered why love didn’t last
Did it breathe the same air, did it burn out too fast
If they’d have made two fires maybe they’d never stall
One in Minneapolis and one in St Paul

He lived in NY and she lived in Austin
The distance between them was cruel and exhausting
Sometimes they wondered if they might have it all
If she was Minneapolis and he was St. Paul
