If I Could Write You a Song

If I could write you a song,
I’d ask you to sing along.
Lyrics without the music,
They just don’t belong.
Like this plane I’m sitting on.
Going nowhere, I’ve always been,
Into the setting sun, away from you,
Away from you.
 
If I could write you a song,
There’s no now, there’s no then,
My life’s not taking off.
There’s no place I’m landing soon.
So much for life’s baggage when,
I can’t even carry a tune.
No place I’m going soon,
If I can’t carry a tune.
 
If I could write you a song,
The music would be all wrong.
In this lonely hotel room.
Trying to forget, drinking wine.
Thin walls, thin lives, keeping time.
Keeping me away from you.
I need to be moving on.
Always away from you.
 
If I could write you a song,
The lyrics would be too long.
Can’t keep these feet on the ground.
City streets, no place to turn around.
In time, it’s always back to you.
If I could write what’s wrong,
This song would never end.
On my way back to you,
Back to you…
On my way.
 
Me
