As soon as I saw the pocket watch in the window,
I knew I had to make it yours.
I could imagine you holding it in your hand
Until the cool metal warmed to your touch.
Let me introduce you to someone,
a friend of mine said
as she steered me through the room.
and I passed through the crowd
I've been searching for God in America
And I've discovered some places he hides.
I found him hiding inside an Aids victim
And staring out of the eyes of a child.
