From this perch
Tried to find
The tallest tree that my
Eyes could climb, but
Little did I know
That this tree
Was under me
The whole time

No more constellations
In night skies
I put them into books
And now all I can find
Are my lines

I’m not tryin’ if it’s hard

Late to work
Once again
Left my car at the
Other end of town
It would be easier to say than that I’m bored

Broke my heart
Waitin’ round
When the doctor called
I said
I’m not free right now
Oh, right now

I’m not tryin’ if it’s
