The lady with the wrinkles that she can’t see
Bought a one way ticket from somewhere east
When she goes north she’ll finally be
Somewhere the day and night aren’t real

She’ll spend her hours and days and weeks
Running fast to keep the breeze on her cheeks
While the sun is up so she can see
Without ever looking directly

We all worry about where we are
Where we’re going and where we aren’t
Worry makes hurry and
Hurrying ain’t getting us anywhere today
Anywhere today

The man with the dark eyes can’t see
Outside the walls he’s hung in these sheets
Temporarily permanent at least for several weeks
While he works out all of his retreats

He’ll spend his hours and minutes and secs
Walking slow booted in warm dry feet
While the moon is so thin that he can’t see
Where he is looking directly

We all worry about where we are
Where we’re going and where we aren’t
Worry makes us stop and
Stopping ain’t getting us anywhere today
Anywhere today
