The Dust Ain't Settled Just Yet (Click Here to listen)

My lover stood right next to me In the morning sunrise of a New York City street Her shadow-cast eyes smiled my way A shy goodbye glance as we parted for the day
I forgot to say I love you that day I failed to kiss her softly on her way I missed a last embrace before she left to go How could I know? How could I know?
The dust ain't settled just yet It clouds my eyes, it heaves in my breast The dust ain't settled for me just yet
My lover stood tall as I left The New York City sunrise shone bright on his breast His sweet sunlit eyes softly said A silent so long I remembered at the end
I forgot to say I love you that day I failed to kiss him softly on his way I missed a last embrace before I left to go How could I know? How could I know?
Two lovers stand parted today In the evening sunset of a New York City grave His stone-faced shadow gently mourns Her shadow-cast stone all that?s left of that morn
He'd remember I love you today He'd remember to kiss her on her way He'd remember to hold her before she left to go
How could he know? How could she know?
