Pardon my dust
I just got off the road
Back from Avignon

I’d brush it off
But lord knows if I do
We would cough it up

Get in our lungs
Then become one with us
Mixing in our blood

With every cut
We would see we’re all made
Of the same old stuff

You grab my shoulders
Pull me in closer
Hear you say
“Tu es pardonné”

Sorry I’m here
I know I haven’t called
For a half a year

Sorry my note
Did not show, truth be told
I didn’t get around to it

Each time I sat
With a pen and a pad
I would hear your voice

Beckoning me
So I thought why waste time
With just the thought of you

You pour the water
Love like a cauter
Open your doorways
Forgive like a Sunday
Hear you say
“Tu es pardonné”

Pardon my dust
I just got off the road
Like a vagabond
