Moon time working

 

and wet grass walking

 

smiling

 

and farther go looking

 

stardust

 

with the sunburnt arms

 

 

we ain’t too far from the highway

 

So I’ll hideaway

 

And breathe real deeply

 

 

I’m walking around and just plain trying

 

 

Someone who’s thinking they were right here before

 

but I’m not there

 

and it’s been hard before

 

 

I hope you take me

 

and I’ll be real serious

 

decide to put a little skin in the game

 

 

and that’ll be the same

 

and you ain’t the same

 

and grandma ain’t been the same

 

 

but I could still choose to smile
