Only Me and My Guitar

Was it something left unsaid?
Something that I should have read,
something that you left between the lines,
for me to find.

Only me and my guitar
Left staring at the fading wall
as the shadows lengthen up the stair
and down the hall

And the orphaned moon and stars
now press against the groaning windows
with the weight of words unspoken

and like a fallen house of cards
we're left to sit among the shards
of a promise that was broken

Only me and my guitar
left stranded in the velvet night
huddled 'neath the clear and distant stars
we watch the cars.

And the daylight rushes towards me
at eight-hundred miles an hour
cross the oceans, cross the water

cross the mountains, cross the valleys
cross the rivers on the prairies
touch the cities, touch the flowers

Touching me and my guitar
