As the Crow Flies

©2010 Doug Spears

 

I thought I knew just where I was going when I started down this road,

But it seems like maybe I’ve gotten lost or maybe lost control,

I know I came just the way I planed, but now there’s nothing I recognize,

Still looking back inside my head it just doesn’t seem that far,

As the crow flies.

 

Well if I’d known then what I know now it still wouldn’t be enough,

‘Cause the only thing I’ve really learned is that this road can get so rough,

I thought it through, every detail down, but somewhere I compromised,

Still looking back now inside my head it just doesn’t seem that far,

As the crow flies.

 

            Oh as the crow flies there’s nothing but horizon,

            All sense of time and distance fall away,

            And as the crow flies there’s just no denying,

            That what you thought was black and white was just shades of gray,

            As the crow flies.

 

So with tired hands wrapped ‘round a coffee cup I pick at loose threads in my scheme,

It seemed so easy at the start, an all too common theme,

But seasons change and colors fade, time strips off all disguise,

And when I look back inside my head it still doesn’t seem that far,

As the crow flies.

 

            Oh as the crow flies there’s nothing but horizon,

            All sense of time and distance fall away,

            And as the crow flies there’s just no denying,

            That what you thought was solid gold is just simple clay,

            As the crow flies.

 

            As the crow flies.
