After the Storm
I walked out on the levee to watch the river and feel the rain To see if there was something I could find I wouldn't be here now but I sort of missed the train The way I miss the one I left behind Circles of the past fade away so fast While they spin and turn you live and learn I heard you when you were leaving, It was just a quick goodbye I didn't even wonder for how long The paddle wheels are turning, The steamboat whistles cry I wonder now if I'm the one who's gone If I'd taken that job in Santa Fe I never would have lost what I lost today I'd go somewhere if I had somewhere to go You're in Baton Rouge I bet, or maybe Lafayette Houston, San Antone, it's all the same Some things I just don't get, I'm not hearing from you yet Still waiting for the help that never came I'll walk out on the highway and see what I can find Maybe nothing more than just a ride They say the storm is over but they don't know my mind Is there even any reason left to hide? Circles of the past fade away so fast While they spin and turn you live and learn Time is to the game like fire is to the flame There's nothing more to learn Just let it burn
