The Bus Ride Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Frankie is gone
Daddy's figured it out by now
She's long gone
To a town she'd heard in a song
On the radio years ago
Verse 2
On a bus
Frankie offers her last cigarette
To someone named angel
On the ride she tells a tale
Of dreams undone and those to come
Verse 3
Oh, oh, oh
Maybe we're not alone
Oh, oh, oh
Maybe we're not alone
Verse 4
On the aisle
A man turns to say
I've got nothing to hold me since she went away
Angel says hey man, Frankie and me
You know we're startin' new just like you
Verse 5
So they ride
Side by side by side
Into the darkness
Every mile that they're passin' through
Just makes them think it could be true
Verse 6
Verse 7
But surrounded by
Silent points of light that fight to be seen
In a world that's quick to cast it's shadow
And douse the beams
Verse 8
Driver says
It's the end of the line, time to go
So Frankie wakes angel
Hey we're here
I don't know where here is
Just some town
This is just some bus
But it's far enough
For the three of us
Verse 9
[Chorus: x2]
