Big Black Car - Gregory Alan Isakov

Hope was a thing I never believed in, it was a withering concept going down a boulevard of broken dreams. I lost everything, I lost all that was dear to me. I was roaming around, aimlessly, with no sense of direction. All was lost until I met you. Amongst a unrelenting storm I saw you standing in the desolate streets, tears flowing down your face blending in with the summer rain. I saw you there, the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen, lonely and sad soaking in the rain. Without a word spoken, I offered you my umbrella. And all you did was smile. The most lovely smile in the world. You told me that you saw all the good of this world being sucked dry in front of your eyes, but then I came along, a kind stranger offering you shelter in the middle of this horrible storm, a simple gesture that rekindled your lost faith in humanity. At that moment, two lost souls that were caught in the chaos connected. Then the rest was history.  

"Well time has a way of throwing it all in your face. The past, she is haunted, the future is laced."
