Saturday 27 January 2018 "Your Bright Baby Blues" ~ Jackson BROWNE

I'm sitting down by the highway,
Down by that highway side.
Everybody's going somewhere,
Riding just as fast as they can ride.
I guess they've got a lot to do
Before they can rest assured
Their lives are justified.
Pray to God for me, baby,
He can let me slide.

'Cause I've been up and down this highway,
Far as my eyes can see.
No matter how fast I run,
I can never seem to get away from me.
No matter where I am,
I can't help thinkin' I'm just a day away
From where I want to be.
Now I'm running home, baby,
Like a river to the sea

...

It's so hard to come by
That feeling of peace.
This friend of mine said
"Close your eyes, and try a few of these".
I thought I was flying like a bird
So far above my sorrow,
But when I looked down,
I was standing on my knees.
Now I need someone to help me,
Someone to help me please.

Baby, if you need me,
Like I know I need you,
There's just one thing
I'll ask you to do.
Take my hand and lead me
To the hole in your garden wall,
And pull me through.
