lyrics

To get from San Francisco to Marin
You must cross a bridge or board a boat
Ferry ride to the other side of the Bay
Embarcadero to Sausalito
Houseboats bobbing, No Name bar
You could pull to the curb in your car
Come pick me up
Come meet me on the other side

But you weren't that kind, not ever
Instead you wrote me letters
With perfect handwriting
Handmade paper at the post office
Five blocks from horse hill
Turn a key, sit on a bench, cry to start my day
All I wanted you to say
Come meet me on the other side

Maple trees going from green to red
Time passing before our eyes
To get from then to now I don’t know how
We did it

To get from Marin to Oakland
You must cross a bridge or board a boat
Ferry ride to the other side
Larkspur, Jack London Square
Sailboats listing, Last Chance Saloon, I’ll wait for you there
Come pick me up
Come meet me on the other side
Come pick me up
I’ll meet you on the other side
