Painfully Blue

Sometimes it seems like we wait forever for things to change and just when we forget to wait, it happens.  And nothing is ever the same again.



Painfully Blue                                       


It’s been a long time I haven’t kept track

I’ve been praying for rain but the sky won’t turn black

I’m there on the porch like I’m waiting for mail

like a man on the sea always watching his sail

and the sky remains painfully blue


we hold out for something simple and good

just to be found and be understood

and they say good things come to those who will wait

I’ve been willing so long

I’m a wide open gate


there are signs for the hunter and for the prey

but too many words are wasted this way

the odds have been generous as numbers can be

they grow wide as oak trees and give shade for free

and painted me pale as a ghost




bridge (Ooo ooo)


love is like water under the bridge

and sex is a postcard I stuck to the fridge

I just want a light that burns only for me

to lighten my step make me weak in the knees

bring me home without brick or stone
