about

November 1963.

Warm weather and cheering crowds greet the President when he lands at Dallas airport. As the motorcade cuts through the city, I fantasise about waving at John and Jackie, or leaning over the window of a sixth floor, or being Abraham Zapruder, standing still while everything changes.

lyrics

Somehow, somewhere
I’m part of the crowd
Shaking hands with him
Bringing roses to her
At Love Field

Somehow, somewhere
Standing still at a window
I lean over, stay on the low
I hold my breath
I show my strength

The limo, the bikes
The petals, the signs
—She’s waving—

The flowers, the dress
The runner, the press
—He’s waving—

Somewhere, somehow
Here, right now
—I’m waving—

Somewhere, somehow
The moment is right
To stand still
