Desperate Drive

16 6 8

The sun sets over the horizon
Orange and gold
A fire in the sky.
The road is long yet before me
Ragged and old
I have to try.

I don't know if the car will make it
Engine light on
No choice.
I think there's a tire gone flat
I carry on
Singing voice.

Portland to Missouri in a desperate drive
Drop everything
Go home.
I'm out of my mind but I don't know it
So loud I sing
Words I know.

Manic, they'll tell me later
Poor girl
Live alive.
Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska
See the world
In a desperate drive.

Sun rises on my windshield
Car made it
3 days alone.
Exhausted and mentally broken
But I made it
God, I'm home.
