Dusty Road

You say it’s ok
But I want to believe you
You say you love me
I want to receive it too


But I come from a dusty road
Some trees along the way
Offering support
But some decided not to stay


The clock has stopped
So I can’t see
How long been low on gas
The loss of time perplexes me


The gas isn’t my life expectancy
But fuel of hope
What started as destiny
Quickly lost its wide scope


I know others have dusty roads
But mine seems so dry
I choose stick shift to experience life
But you question why


I try to stop asking why
I’ll keep driving
Where the rubber meets the road
Where it’s ok my history was my striving
