about

A song I wrote about life on the streets of any town in America, inspired by my neighbor, Telena.

lyrics

The air was cold so the car wouldn't start
it was the third time this week i kicked her back into park
with a chill on my neck and love in my heart
i set out without
thinking too hard

my boots stiffened uo from the frost in the air
the bare skin on my head seemed to long now for hair
the burdens of life
they found me worse for the wear
i may struggle but who said that this life would be fair?

the lessons I've learned, nobody can teach
theres a whole world that doesn't revolve around me
there are people who are willing to die just to see
a day knowing what i means to be truly free

it took me fifteen years just to make it this far
to realize you can't put your faith in them stars
and if your debt went unpaid, and your bellied up to the bar
it may just be time to reassess who you are

fortune lives on the corner beyond, though its just out of reach for my neighbor
still she joins in when i song all my song
cause she knows that loves in her favor

she sings
here i am
a woman of the lord
she took my hand and held it tight
she said boy don't go thinking you're better than most
the only truth comes from whats inside

hallelujah set me free
don't give a damn about the cold cause I'm alive
hallelujah
save my soul, in the end no-one can say that i didn't try
