I awoke after the long haul flight,
I was felling awful tired, I was alone,
My head was ringing like a bell,
I was spinning like a compass lost its pole,
There’s no electromagnetism,
Or mathematical algorhythm I don’t know,
But your heart’s too hard to figure out,
I guess I just went south to put on a show,

I spent the first days walking halways,
Pretending you and I had been always doomed,
A dissertation in denial,
A thesis on the thoughts of a love assumed,
I did not care my fuel had run out,
Or all my freeze-dried rations had been consumed,
I did not hear my shelter fall down,
Because all I ever thought about was you,

Now the antarctic winter has got me freezing,
A blast of white done stopped my breathing air,
Your distance and my disposition,
Got me thinking I don’t even care,
I can’t return to see you babe,
But it was enough just once to have touched your hair,
To have gone away without telling you these things,
Well that much I suppose, it isn’t fair,

So if you find another,
Just make sure he’s not a wanderer of lands,
Or if you’ve changed and are indeed now,
One who lives more free from health and plans,
You don’t have to recall my name,
Or separate my face from another mans,
But honey can you not forget,
Just what it was to once have held my hand,

I want to run like the bulls do,
Scream out at the full moon in the sky,
Take out all my overcoats,
And trade them for the arms of a loving kind,
Up above and down below,
I searched but baby I could never find,
A way to take these simple words down to the page,
And out of my mind.
A way to take these simple words down to the page,
And out of my mind.
