That old wind has become my brother… Song 327

Today’s song was inspired by a photo I took years ago while waiting for the train. It was cold and the wind was blowing. I had to bundle up, but the view was very cool to me. I named the picture “Clybourn Station Blues”. So, I set it as my desktop background and wrote this song…

Song 327: “Clybourn Station Blues”

I’ve been waiting so long for that train
To take me far away from this city
I’ve been chasing rain far too long
I just want to find my blue skies again

I’ve spent so much time with demons on my trail
Reaching out and clawing at my soul
I’ve been broken down and reviled
I just want to get out on those rails

The world keeps catching up with these old bones
I can’t take a breath without feeling oh so cold

That old wind has become my brother
Those stars don’t wanna shine for me
All those empty faces push to pass me by
All that cold concrete facade becomes my mother

The world keeps catching up with these old bones
I can’t take a breath without feeling oh so cold

Worries here
Worries gone
Worries back to stay

The world keeps catching up with these old bones
I can’t take a breath without feeling oh so cold

Oh so cold
