Never Gone to You

You were a tender, crooked weed
To be tended on the weekend
Weakened by the pull toward the one
Who couldn’t stay
This is how you learned to love
The ones who treat you badly
Sometimes he says he loves you
Sometimes he walks away

Wasn’t anything you said
Nothing you did or didn’t do
Maybe he’s gone
But he’s never gone to you

He’s alive, he’s alive
He’s alive as a wildfire
Full of ashes and desire
When you’re tearing up the place
And you see him from afar
Sometimes someone shows you the pictures
He’s playing in a bar
With the lights across his face


White Cliffs
New Year’s Eve
Sixty-nine to seventy
He was young, what did he know
He was sent away from home

There’s a time to let it go
He’s just a man wit problems
And it’s not your job to solve them
And even if you could
He may never lay his eyes upon the child in your arms
Or see you make something from nothing
Turn something bad to good
