I've been on the road again today
someone have the piece of mind to stop me where I lay
and I would be another fly on the wall
less distracted come to terms
pull down the woolen shawl
the letters in my dreams all change around
leading me to see there is no concrete state of mind
although I've tried to keep it high all along
keeping questions in my pocket like a box that's full of charms
and you don't come to me unless you're called
your color's in the leaves and on your breath is alcohol
and I would be such a fool not to give
but protection comes a virtue and we've separate lives to live
we don't have to feel the change in spring
unwrap it throw the peel keep your head down start again
among the chain you're a link pulled tight
along with tension comes a weakness
put down the will to fight
you, you're a warm heart beat
always working where you sleep
thoughts are rolling out the door
home on the mantle near your thrown
photographs and things you own
giving permanence to place
to all of the things we keep around
be it luck lost or found
we are bound to separate
