“Very Far From Home”
Darling you better get yourself inside
Your body’s not made for these conditions,
It seems your bones are breaking.
I know you’re out here trying to hide,
But it seems as though you’ve lost your pride
As you can see now, your brittle bones are shaking.
So come on baby lets take a ride,
Somewhere way beyond the sky,
Where birds appear as small as our shoelaces
And if you scream or start to cry,
I’ll be there standing by
To feed you until you’re satiated.
So come on baby let’s take a ride,
Every good boy needs a good cry
To let him know that he is not alone.
And I’ll be there standing right beside
My baby boy as we start to fly
And end up somewhere very far from home
Very far from home.
I know every reason why
You left me for a better life
And I hope you’re doing well away from here.
And it’s been such a long time,
Since I’ve had you on my mind
And now all the ghosts just reappear.
So darlin’ wherever you are
Remember that you and I
Will never put the past behind.

Printed thoughts of love and laughs
Have made the deepest imprint in my mind.
