A TRIP TO ANYWHERE

  I'm searching for loose change, standing by 
  The car wash,
  I'm happy just waiting for a ride.

  Here it comes, "sir! does the bus stop at 82nd street"

  My pink Cadillac is a stolen car, I just gave it a name.

  This hard land does not make me a lucky man,

  My wife and I were once the honeymooners, now 
  Trouble in paradise.
  So young and in love, we were two for the road,

  The wish I have is to be back in your arms.

  Don't look back says a man with sad eyes,

  I used to be a man at the top, now I have restless nights.

  The bus stops here where I rendezvous with her,

  Give the girl a kiss and stare over the rise of the sun.

  We go to a place and watch a T.V. movie,

  "I'm always here when you need me" "she says"

   We watched seven angels, It started to rain,

  There was a great thunder crack.

  Some of us have hearts of stone, not us,

  Bring on the night, when the lights go out, so peaceful,

  Shut out the light.

                                  Keith Garrett
