The world is burning But we’re in paradise The warmth of our embrace Intensifies Maybe our fate will dip and dive Maybe we’ll want for more But not today No — NO — not today
Father lays in final bed, can’t get up or make some sense Of the dimming glow of morning light The total loss of appetite How to say goodbye Feel the pain, the loss, the strange surprise Cry your tears until they dry Don’t retrace the things you might have done The end is by design
The joys and woes, the day exhausts The life we want and what it costs The money thing, the dos and don’ts Toss the fight? We know we won’t Reaching for every tomorrow
They smile goodnight, their fingers touch No tenderness denied The bedroom door is open but Will the moment live or die The shadows play a guessing game As man and wife recline What drove them close in years gone by That will not come alive
I don’t tell jokes anymore Thought you should know Damn things don’t make me laugh Not even my own And the dog next door don’t bark Since I gave him a snack Told him, Boy, got to keep our voices down In case you’re coming back
Walking Home 03:14
I am not an astronaut or talk show host I’m just a cowboy walking home. Beneath the stars beside the road I’m thirsty But I can see the light on my front porch Walking home Walking home Walking home Straight in the door Where I know it’s warm
