You're Still Alive In My Head

It just started raining your grand kids are playing
We’re waiting we’ll be eating soon
The wood stove is burning my typewriter’s learning
The only thing missing is you

I couldn’t say so I sat down to write it instead
I’m afraid if you stay away I might forget
You’re still alive in my head

I’m thinking about buying an old house
And trying to fix it but I could use some help
A home with a garden they say it’s a bargain
But I can’t do it myself

When will you arrive
I’ll get in my car and drive to wherever you are
Call me on the phone
It’s taking way too long
Way too long

I’ve got two of my own and a third will be born in November
You would be proud of me
So much has changed since you left it feels strange
It’s already 1983
