I Think That Was Me

Leaving from where I want to be away,
March has the jump on me, the cool breeze
and I thought it was you breathing on my cheek

Springtime and the living is crazy, not easy,
flowers pushing up through the sod
and all I can feel is your fingers on my back

Wishing they were, that sweet pressure,
laying in the gray black, dreaming, hallucinating,
and I thought it was you that I had chased

only to wake up striped with oyster light,
panting and sweating, hands clenched,
with the scrapes to prove my fall


Words in bold are lyrics from the song "Driveway to Driveway" by Superchunk.  A very inspiring song, and a little close to the bone...

  1. Ah, that sweet pressure.

    This morning, it was counteracted by more frickin' snow!
