Lying awake

Here is a new one I wrote. rather rough, needs some sparkle still...

 

While this old city is under stars 

I lie awake, wonder where you are 

Fire dances with the old north wind 

Took my chances on you again 

The years have been so kind to you 

Don’t know what my life’s coming to 

While I rode those empty railways 

You went and chased your own freeways 

 

Now here I am, waiting for you 

Find some new place worth running to 

I fight my darkness, don’t know how 

To find your light and settle down 

You know my secrets, like a child 

You’re a stray flower, growing wild 

While this old city is under stars 

I lie awake wonder where you are 

 

Gentle breeze in the morning sun 

Awakens me, the dark is done 

I call out for you, no one there 

Searching for you is such a dare 

Think I saw you in pouring rain 

Evening storms that we can’t explain 

You take my hand, lead me on home 

I take the wheel, still have to roam 

 

Now here I am, waiting for you 

Find some new place worth running to 

I fight my darkness, don’t know how 

To find your light and settle down 

You know my secrets, like a child 

You’re a stray flower, growing wild 

While this old city is under stars 

I lie awake wonder where you are
