Today’s song is also brought to you by Memories Of Things Past:
“Rise” / Josh Rouse (1998)
And no, I can’t find a link to an audio version (but Google “josh rouse rise lyrics” and you’ll be directed to an iLike.com link), so here’s the lyrics:

Think I’m gonna pass out
Think I’ll just lay down right here
Would someone turn the light out?
I’ll cover myself with a jacket, I’ll still
Catch the last ride on a Brooklyn train
30 years old and nothing’s changed

Spent hours on a landline,
Hopin’ you would find time for me
Showed up at your door, it was a scene
I was so sure,
You would be free
I should have caught a ride on a Brooklyn train
30 years old and nothing’s changed

And I’ll rise to greet you in the morning… time
And I’ll rise to greet you in the morning

Tried so hard to ignore
All the feelings I have for you,
They won’t leave
I’m so crazy
How I wish you would come around
And we could meet
So catch the last ride on the Brooklyn train
Meet me on a corner and I’ll entertain

And I’ll rise to greet you in the morning… time
And I’ll rise to greet you in the morning
It’s an honest thing, and honest things they last

I think they’re gonna come and carry me away…
I think they’re gonna come and carry me away…
I think they’re gonna come and carry me away…
From you…

I think they’re gonna come and carry me away…
I think they’re gonna come and carry me away…
I think they’re gonna come and carry me away…
From you… From you… From you.
