When heat is all up I feel
You’re tired of the steel
When life seems no more
And lying down is what you adore
When isolation becomes too much
Then you long for a lost touch
When those who you supposed to love you
Or that’s how it seems
When you embrace the way a singer sings
When her lungs blow you feel blown
You’ll feel love from all these things
Until they say
You die on this day!
I lay in my bed
Thinking and thinking
Of the people, the places and
Different periods of time
I’d rather be
Instead of journeying in my mind
To a place where I’m free.
Captivated by these captive journeys
While mourning the many people
Who should miss me
May the love I yearned from them
Rest in peace.
Barefoot and hungry.
I came walking out of abandonment
Following that star
The great state of Texas
