lyrics

He says pleased to meet you ma'am
Sticks out his hand
It was the biggest hand I ever
He was the biggest man I knew

He pulled out my chair
I'm sure I scowled
I can take care of myself
I have been pulling chair just fine

But I didn't know what he already knew
Moments are far too few
When we can be kind to each other
I was hanging out
He stayed on the sides
We were both holding time
Could we be kind to each other in the waiting?

Well, I can't believe you're standing here
Where else would I be?
It is the start of the season
He says listen to everything that that girl says
She's one of the ones who care
And I wouldn't be here without her

But I didn't know what he already knew
Moments are far too few
When we can be kind to each other
I was moving on
He still held the line
I never thought to say goodbye
Could we be kind to each other in the losing?

He says I don't even like this game
I'll play it anyway there's people here I love
And you don't know just how lucky you have been
You can be anything and choosing is not a burden
Why do you act like it is?
I would give anything

But I didn't know what he already knew
Moments are far too few
When we can be kind to each other
I was moving on
He still held the line
I never thought to say goodbye
Could we be kind to each other in the losing?

about

Everything in Pen San Francisco

Combining the pop sensibility of Big Star and narrative observations of Jonathan Richman and Aimee Mann, Everything in Pen’s songs cover many topics---war criminals, sexism, and Dave Eggers--through her unique lens as an obsessive reader. She sings the things you won’t say aloud, of the foolishness, the hopefulness and the almost unbearable humanness of us all. ... more
