Take Me Further

The morning breaks on the outlines of the story

but all I see is just the place where I start

and not a trace in the clear light of the morning

of all the dreams that looked so real in the dark.

So take me further on down the highway

if you can stop and you maybe find yourself going my way

for though the distance is hazy

it looks like I'm on the right way, I believe.

The north field crows scatter and fly past the treetops.

I'd follow them but I don't have any wings.

I'll have to go follow the lines on the blacktop

that twist and turn this way and that to get free.

So take me further on down the highway...

The weeds grow up out of the hood and the fenders

of a rusty truck that sits alone in someone's yard.

If it could run I know it would help me get there

but here's good luck making it go very far.

So take me further on down the highway...
