1. The Driveway

From the recording A Beautiful Sound

Last night after dinner
I walked outside
I lay down on the driveway
and looked up at the sky

I lay down to give up
I lay down to say no
I wanted to escape
the driveway would not let go

I have a mind that thinks with time
an answer can be found
the driveway offered no solution
it offered the ground

It’s hard to pin down
what I looked up there to find
have you been lying in your driveway
searching for relief of some kind?

When I’d laid there long enough
to hold what I was feeling
I got up and thanked the driveway
for it’s healing

When I have to lie down
before I can get up again
the driveway can be
the perfect friend
