El Paso Blues

In the city

I grew up in

There’s a mountain

I like to drive through

At night

And see

All the lights


What’s going on

Inside of each

Including yours

What are you up to

Are you happy

Are you sad

And as the mountain

Winds down

I picture running

Through a barrier

Just another thought

I’ve always had

Who would be there

At my funeral

Who would cry

Would the world be

Better without me

Just another light

Not willing to fight


They might say

But today

The only thing

I think about

Is you

And that gets me by

Just fine
