And check out the beautiful lyric video based on artwork by Sarah's sister, Veronica Chih Ming Frank:

With everything going on in the world, it almost seems silly to share a song about something so simple as chatting with someone on a bus. But it's more than that, it's a connection with another human being, a moment of vulnerability, and a reminder of what life is all about. In the case of this song, it takes place with someone who would eventually become a good friend of ours, his wife and kids too. I had the chance to ask this friend about it after the fact, and he said, yes, he also felt a freedom he had not felt in a long time. Maybe it was the fact that we had just played a concert together, maybe it was the darkness eliminating any need to think about eye contact, or maybe it was the hour-long bus ride creating a time capsule away from distractions - but somehow we became strikingly present to one another. To share this with a man, in a world where women sadly can assume that a man could be looking to take more than he should, adds to the beauty of it all and I felt grateful to feel safe and treasured as a friend. For this, I say thank you to my dear bus-ride friend. I am so glad to have gotten to know him and his family, and that we could start off witnessing something so personal of each other.
