The great escape
You were a lover that didn't want to stay.
How many times did you want to just be on your way.
I was the crazy guy that still wanted you anyway.
Until...I realized the only way true love would ever come to me
would follow the day me and you set each other free.
I watched our best days waving as they were slowly passing.
I knew we both could no longer wait to accept our fate.
Another lovers plane now doomed for crashing.
I still remember the day you went away
as if it was only yesterday.
I could have stopped you?
But...why the hell would I want to have my say
and quite possibly ruin an otherwise perfectly normal day.
Her plan was actually very simple and it could no longer wait
cause now freedom was calling out to her
its time for the great escape.
And as her motorcycle roars loudly into its noisy pipes
a smile touches her lips for awhile
for she knows just a few miles down the road freedom waits with all its hopes and style.
Now she can no longer hesitate.
The beginning of a brand new life doesn't want to wait.
No doubt she feels just like Steve McQueen as she rode her motorcyle from the scene.
I watch as her bike surges away.
How many times has her heart cryed and yearned for this very day.
She must have always knew she wasn't where she really wanted to be.
Her battle cry has to be give me freedom and hello liberty.
She quickly traverses hills, valleys, and gullys
only stopping for rest in the shadows.
She and her bike fly gracefully over every fence and sometimes she cruises thru lovely silky meadows.
Each successive Evil Kneivel jump seems to invigorate her more and gets her nostrils flaring.
At long last she has embraced the day to get away
this girl that is so strong and full of daring.
Suddenly on the dusty road ahead
doubt and fear raise up their ugly heads.
She already knows where she must go...
she will give them no chance to gain control
all she hears and knows is this freedom calling out to her soul.
She calls on every ounce of strength for she knows the prize is just around the bend
for that is where freedom waits and where a new life begins.
It wasn't easy for me to let my love go away.
She was my best friend in many ways.
But I chose to respect and accept the truth that her love never wanted to stay
and I hope we both embrace the lessons learned from this great escape.
She took her love and went away
so freedom...sweet freedom could embrace us both on that sad but lovely day.
Sweetheart...with all my sincerity I say..."I hope and pray your lonely heart finds the one and only place it yearns to stay."
