Running down a central reservation in last night's red dress
And I can still smell you on my fingers and taste you on my breath
Stepping through brilliant shades, all the color you bring
This time, this time, this time is whatever I want it to mean

    near the end, Beth does a little "ba da ba" that sounds similar to Earth Wind & Fire's "Brazilian Rhyme" :)

    I wish Beth would cross the pond and visit the colonies again soon. I haven't seen her live since 2006 and I miss her.

    It is. The Then Again version is my favorite. I have just learned that the central reservation is what we americans call the median strip. (Silly me, I'd always had vague images of native americans.)
