Ben Folds - Wandering Lyrics

She's a million miles away
From me
Separated by a hollow wooden door
Some time we can't erase
Serves me right
To let her in the first time
That she knocked

And all this wandering
Got you nothing
You were ready to but
Never could

Things you never saw in me
She'll see
Observations that she'd heard from other people
That she never understood
Serves her right
Not knowing just exactly what she wants

And all this wandering
Got me nothing
You were ready to but never could

Are you happy

Remember sitting on your car
That night
Clouds rolled out unvailing lights around the bay
And you told me all those things

Remember that?
You told me you can't match your clothes
Remember that?
Confessed how when I laugh sometimes, I'm crying
And we sat and didn't talk for half an hour

Remember that?
Cause I won't remember

And all this wandering
And all this wandering

    This reminds me of a time long past in my life of my first real love when I was in my teens. I'm 59 now. Her family became a second family to me. Her Dad became the father I wish I would have had. We were first friends then got closer. Then I made the mistake of introduced her to my best friend who looked like Roland Kent La Voie of the group" Lobo". Well, you know what happened after that. But it didn't last long with him, then with me then with him.I guess I became the go between when they were mad at each other. Then she graduated and move a thousand miles away. Wandered back and forth from time to time between Delaware and Oklahoma . Got married, had two children. A boy and a girl. Then after her father died, she came back once or twice over the next couple of decades then stopped. Then, not even her family in Delaware would hear from her and then disappeared. The last thing I heard was she left her husband, got real sick for a while. Now there has been nothing for the past 5 or 6 years. I did some research in the obits in Ok. and surrounding states but turned up nothing. For whatever reason, she has shut out her Delaware family. Her OK. family claims to know nothing more than we do. Anyway Lynda, thanks for sharing your family here with me back then. Hope wherever you are and whatever your doing you are well and happy.
