"What's the song called?"
"It's Naked, James Arthur"
"Hmm, it's nice. Now stay quiet so I can listen to it."
You go back to munching on your Jim Jam, as I look out of the window.
It's a three hour bus journey. By the end of it you'll be home and mine will be a long day. But I'm not thinking about it. Something about the moment right there feels very complete. Except I need to pee. I wish I could stop thinking about it but I can't. You tell me the bus will stop in about an hour and that information isn't of much help.
"Cause here I am, I'm givin' all I can
