All I can say- is it feels much like

You’re another planet away

The sun rises, then the sun falls

The moon sneaks by before dawn

And I’m still here- beset to this place

Not an inch closer wearing the same blues

Listening to my old sublevel tunes

Some think, I just might be crazy

I think- they’re just being too nosey                

As I subsist my way through another day     

Maybe I’ll get lucky, and it will rain

So, I can go out walking to feel something new

Dripping off my skin, caressing my face

And I can pretend… something has changed
