Onion Road



we drove on this asphalt together
sun dots blink in your rear view mirrors
I love to watch your blond hair flip and twirl
the heat of the wind blows by
taking my heart break with it
making it vanish too
the sister chatter and gladness
takes away my history, my sadness

we drove on this dusty pavement
pin-wheel coloured chutes float down from the sky
white clouds puffed blue blue expanse above
the coolness of the froggy swamp billows by
taking my heart break with it
making it vanish too
the sister chatter and gladness
takes away my history, my sadness

we drove on this rolling thunder
canopy the trees armies of bees
little bouncing fidgety feet tapping
tiny hand caressing the locks from lashes
taking my heart break with it
making it vanish too
the sister chatter and gladness
takes away my history, my sadness

and leaves it seeded on onion road
