week thirty: on the street after the show

on the street after the show

i saw you down in houston
on the street after the show
you asked me to walk with you
i said i gotta be back soon though
we walked down white oak
and turned onto heights
and you said me and johnny cash
are the only ones you like
you said you miss the friends
that we had growing up
and last year at jay's wedding
it was so good seeing everyone
you said that you’re proud of me
that i’m driven by a passion
but mostly i don’t feel that way
and if i’m driven by anything it’s caffeine
and i miss out on a lot while i’m driving
like the ground back home is frozen
and she’s digging out the car
and she’s driving to the ocean
with her headphones and our dog
and she listens to marc maron
the one with rosanne cash
her mother came from texas
and her daddy dressed in black
you said that you hate houston
you said i’ll play better shows
you said i’m glad you followed your dreams
i said i don’t know what anybody means
when they say just do what you love
when they say be passion bound
there’s one thing i’m ok at
there’s a lot i’m missing now
johnny might’ve said he’s sorry
johnny might've said he’s wrong
johnny died in nashville
now rosie’s writing songs
there’s a million ways to dig in
there’s a million ways to try
and every way’s the same
so long as you’re not telling lies
so you do me your favors
and i’ll do you mine
and i won’t ever sweat you
or assume you’re wasting time
oh i’ll walk with you forever
i’ll walk you to the moon
i won't believe in anything
like i’ll believe in you
oh i’ll walk with you forever
i’ll walk with you always
and if i could die a dreamer
i’d die everyday
i saw you down in houston
in the street after the show
