Dusk

 

Clear Night

Engine running hot, tank is reading low -
I’m maybe looking for a burger & another cup of joe -
I pull out at a truck stop and in the fading desert light -
I could see that it would be... a clear, clear night.

I wish that you were out here to take in what I see -
but then you were probably right for setting yourself free -
I always heard what you said, but never what you meant -
You think there’s always time & then somehow the time’s all spent -
Forgive but don’t forget: that’s messed up but its alright -
Anything can happen on a... clear, clear night.

Green flash on the horizon, 4,000 RPMs -
Vibrations settling my brain, your Daddy’s trying to contend -
with all the ways I let you down, but that was never my intent -
You think there’s always time & then somehow the time’s all spent -
Forgive but don’t forget: that’s messed up but its alright -
We count the same stars on a... clear, clear night.

Pink blinking neon sign from an old L-shaped motel -
I pull my boots off by the pool, there’s so much I want to tell, you Mama -
How could you read letters I never sent?
You think there’s always time & then somehow the time’s all spent -
Looking up from underwater, the moon so slivery & white -
We count the same stars on a... clear, clear night.
