Awhile

about

There’s an ocean to the right of me
There are mountains on my left
Headed Northward, down the middle
Hesitation in my step

There’s a sinking in my stomach
And a shiver in my spine
I can’t see what’s in the distance
Only what I leave behind
There’s a guard perched on a tower
He’s got cigarettes and guns
It’s the first time, not the last time
My best decision is to run


I’m a poet, I’m a pilot,
I am bursting at the seams
Lines delivered like a puzzle
I am younger than I seem


Than I seem, Than I seem
I can’t help but dream
I can’t help but dream
I can’t help but dream


I say forgiveness is a promise
I’m not strong enough to keep
What is asked for, what is given
Cannot run my kind of deep


If you worry for my safety
Well, I wouldn’t be surprised
I stand tough like I’m a soldier
When I really wanna hide


To hide, to hide
I won’t take your side,
I won’t take your side,
I won’t take your side


Time is moving like a bandit
With the devil on his trail
I may reach my destination
Doesn’t mean I didn’t fail


I am under the impression
There is danger in your smile
Getting over, getting used to
I know this will take awhile


Awhile, Awhile, Awhile
Counting down the miles,
Counting down the miles,
Counting down the miles


This will take awhile
This will take awhile
This will take awhile
