never leave when you know you could

Feels like getting in the van and putting my summer shoes on the seat
Its the sunscreen missing in the cooler
The stretches of horizon getting colored in again
and my lonesome pines, my cactus circle, my rocky outcrops
just an ordinary story about this daughter
how she came to miss the road and its tolls
Feels like getting in the back with a blanket
gas station lights and an empty star filled night
