and she runs through her days with a smile on her face
and she runs, and she waits, and i wait
we can drive to anyplace, day or night, across the state
and in the morning, into mexico, we will wake up
i find a window in the kitchen, and i let myself in
rummage through the refrigerator, find myself a beer
i can’t believe i’m really here, and she’s lying in that bed
i can almost feel her touch, and her anxious breath!
i stumble in the hallway, outside the bedroom door
i hear her call out to me, i hear the fear in her voice
she pulls the covers tighter, i press against the door
i will be with her tonight!
