Goodbye for Now

The door closed but I am open
Sick of feeling like a thief
City music only sirens
Always tired but I can’t sleep

To my neighbor I am callous
Always thinking aloud
I’m a storm without a cloud
I’m a preacher without a crowd

City lights blind the mind
I’ve forgotten what I really need
I’m full of ideas piled in a heap
I’m full of commitments I can’t keep

Like the leaves I lean toward the light
Struggling to get it right
Always part my hair to the side
Living one day at a time

So Goodbye, for now
So Goodbye, old friend

Dreamed of going to the ocean
Suitcase in my hand
I swear by this time next year
You’ll see a better man.


from Long Road, released May 12, 2015
