Love and Time


Running away the fences breaking
Can’t stop all the feelings rushing through
Broken hearts left in the wake aching
Barb wire digging deep and stretching wounds

Rain and tears mixed into sweat follow
Leaving me naked wandering half blind
Now flesh falling leaving my shadow
Find a new shadow and walk behind

She shouldn’t catch me shadowing to hide
As long as I can mimic the pair
I should be able to live and survive
But at night disappearing ensnared

Seeing the brake lights
Hitching a ride
Running from it all
Leaving your footprints
In the sand
Song fading down the road
