Socks In My Pocket
Oh it rained that day,
and the wind
would have blown us away.
As I drove, I dreamed,
if we could just disappear
in this spray,
could we find a rainbow to hide from the world
or would someone find us and fight for his girl,
but my vision cleared, and we drove on taking you home.
You hold so much love
it takes this ribbon of highway to tie.
It's just this fear we have -
will our faces fade by and by ?
Heading back northwards, our thoughts to ourselves,
are we a key influence, or dust on the shelves ?
I fumble for chocolate, and what's this I find in my hand
Socks in my pocket, tears in my eyes,
love in my heart, from one too many goodbyes.
Oh we will laugh someday
at the crazy neurosis we wore,
when you've found your way
continents flown shore to shore.
Riding the rainbow that circles the world,
finding some young man who'll fight for his girl.
I'll hang up this old coat
and somebody someday may find
socks in my pocket, tears in their eyes,
love in their heart, counting another goodbye
