Never Fails

Never fails I’m stale when I wake up again
once fresh and cool in the vale of dreams
day comes chasing me
real as bread pale as wool
there it is still on my tail.

You may get in bed and the sheets shiver you
but soon you will wake at some ungodly hour
whole body wet and hot
not knowing down from up
seeing only what the covers cover.

[chorus]
Steel drum in the ears
she clings to my fears of being alone
taking off both her wings
making life out of mere backbone.

[verse]
Like a round table with a single leg
like a shotgun many wounds but
only one trigger
wordless warning keeps returning
the winner is the highest bidder.

Arms outstretched the big dipper high overhead
wrapped in blankets hearing what she said
something about hand-me-downs
good enough for most of us
not too far from our home towns.

Steel drum in the ears
she clings to my fears of being alone
taking off both her wings
making life out of mere backbone.
