Stranded Too Long


Stranded Too Long


Wandered through this Desert so Long Drank Mirage fountains

Choked down so much sand…

if you hand me water

And I knock it out of your hand,


I've been stranded Too Long…

It may take a while for me to know what is Real,

Sometimes I just want to lay down…

Close my eyes...and wait for the wind

To blow me Away
