Walk My Way

(Dan Steven)
February, 2003

for Bill Gustin, coffee-shop friend
Walk My Way
I walk my way let the river flow
Ride the waves of holy snow
And come what may,
It’s enough to know that
Your eyes will be there tomorrow
Hold my hand, let the sun set down
Singing songs of a madman erasing the town
You got to be strong, you got to be free
Something nobody no where has ever seen
Like a road stopped when the sign says go
And it’s too much of nothing, not enough of it all
Moon cycles of motion as the
Red jack, black jack, joker card falls
Out on the hillside where the dew drops rain
And tonight’s eternal solace bleeds
Portugal, Portugal, I am coming home.
Though I know I’ve never been there
Your eyes, your eyes are everywhere freeing me
Portugal, out past the concrete groans
I’m running the river to let your love release me

I had a best friend I once knew
in coffeeshop goodbyes
Where each hello was a new beginning
We would talk about Tolstoy through to Geronimo
I had a best friend faded out into a world
Of somebody else’s street signs
I got a heart calling home to Jesus
I don’t need their answers, I don’t need their degrees
Let my heart be the only lonely dancer
Being forever free to remind me
It’s never theirs, it’s never anywhere
But in the way the October leaves
Have known your name since the day you were born
And it’s too much of nothing, not enough of it all
Moon cycles of motion as the
Red jack, black jack, joker card falls
Out on the hillside where the dew drops rain
And tonight’s eternal solace

Bleeds, bleeds

I walk my way, let the river flow
Guide the way of holy snow
Come what may, it’s enough to know
That your eyes will be there tomorrow.
