Earthbound

(Poet and the Pen)

The first line of this song woke me from a dream.

My dream-self telling my not-quite-awake self to write this down! We argued but gratefully the next day I found my notes and spent the next few weeks thinking deeply on the subject Earthbound was the end result.

EARTHBOUND

Jim Dixon

Pour the poet through the pen.

The ink dries and the words set in.

I’m not the man I used to be,

but the part that’s left,

you can’t take from me.

 

I’m tired of trying. I never win.

I just get up and start again.

I’m tired of trying I never win,

but I’m thankful for these few friends.

 

I can’t fly, but I’ll try again.

Take off running, with my fist in the wind. Jump to find I’m earthbound again.

Am I the poet, am I the pen

 

I like the way whiskey tastes.

The picture I keep of a girl with a smile on her face.

They both burn me going down.

I give it one last look before I hit the ground.

I don’t have wings but I do get high.

Stumbling in for one last try.

Well look at me I’m up here high

staring down before I dive.

I can’t fly but, I’ll try again.

Take off running with my fist in the wind.

Jump to find I’m earthbound again.

Am I the poet, am I the pen

Am I the poet, am I the pen
