lyrics

I was in New York City
Thinking what a pity
That Ray and Louise moved on
I took a walk around the block
Turned the corner and saw 
 
A newspaper man 
Taking photographs
Of a girl in pearls
I knew her face
And there was no mistaking
All those auburn curls
 
She lived down the road
We were ten years old
The best friend that I had
Her dad was an army man
In Afghanistan
Came home in a moving van
 
Oh Sarah DeLane
From a little town she came
Outside of Spokane 
Childhood friends playing in the rain
Oh Sarah DeLane 
Lived in a house with a weather vane
And it rained for days
When she when away
 
In the stores 
And corners of the streets
The fashion magazines 
Are on the shelf
Full of high end clothes
And perfect noses
And tips for your health
 
And when I see her on the page
It feels just like 
A friendly wave from the past
She made it big
And it made me think
Of how time moves so fast
 
From the bus stops in queens
To the magazines
Her eyes looked just the same
And I can’t help but smile to myself
Whenever I read her name
 
Oh Sarah DeLane
From a little town she came
Outside of Spokane 
Childhood friends playing in the rain
Oh Sarah DeLane 
Lived in a house with a weather vane
And it rained for days
When she when away
 
I walked on by 
As the flashing light
Of the camera lit the scene
I had a strange feeling
The smile on her face
Wasn’t for the camera 
But for me
 
Then as sure as you’re born
As sure as the sun shine’s warm
She glanced at me
And with a wink of her eye
She said hello and goodbye
And thanks for the memories
 
Oh Sarah DeLane
From a little town she came
Outside of Spokane 
Childhood friends playing in the rain
Oh Sarah DeLane 
Lived in a house with a weather vane
And it rained for days
When she when away
