Small Talk (Are You From Ohio?)

Listen (RealAudio)
Listen (MP3)

I was only passing by
Saw you sitting alone
Music cranked up high
On your headphones
You sort of remind me
Of a woman I once knew
And I like your dog
I used to have one too

Are you from Ohio?
Would you look up and smile?
Would you mind if I
Sat down and talked awhile?

Thanksgiving was good.
Now the Christmas rush.
Just don't feel like shopping
All that much.
Life is good and I'm thankful
For all the good feeling
Though I could do without
That music from the ceiling

Are you from Ohio?
You look sort of shy
But you've got that music
Turned up way too high.

I'm tired of media
And content providers
Which is what we call people
We used to call writers
I'm not networking
Don’t want to be friended
But I'd love to talk
If that itune has ended

The human touch
Face to face
A little nudge
Same time, one space.
Two people meeting
Here in the north
Two hearts beating
Life is so short.

Are you from Ohio?
Would you look up and smile?
Would you mind if I
Sat down and talked awhile?
