Moon time working


and wet grass walking




and farther go looking




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
