on my way

on my way

on my way downtown
where the city lights have turn on
i saw a stranger walking through the traffic jam
it was an old man who's trying to get home safely
with his wife's worries he knew he needs to hold her underneath the moon
so he hurried as he can his heart belongs to the heaven's above

if i only can see it in his eyes
i would know he's flying in the dark sky
angel with pure wings
i would know he's flying in the dark sky

oh on my way uptown
where all the country lands are so empty
somehow i saw nobody around here
a sweet solitude has welcome me to a place i call my own
a place where i heard my thoughts out loud
yet i pick up some sunflower off the dirty ground
plucking the yellow petals away as i'm saying
u love me u love me not u love me oh u love me not
now i'm very sad

and if u were this an old man coming home to his lovely wife
i would see ur flying in the dark sky
angel with pure wings
i only see ur flying in the dark sky

but ur not that old man
ur someone who i thought i love

on my way to that place of my own
i knew i have to move on and get another side of the road
i took a taxi and left the southern sun

oh i was on my way home

if i only can see it in his eyes
i would know he's flying in the dark sky
angel with pure wings
i would know he's flying in the dark sky

Hey, thanks for checking out my blog. I like poetry and my favourite stuff is by WB Yeats. I always read that when i'm bonged out. Seems to make more sense then. I will definitely read this blog when I have my next one!
