it's not the wings of pegasus
that carry me tonight
across a deep, dark sea.

so i cannot sit back
i cannot relax
enjoy the flight and get some sleep.

but over the freeway,
i see a pair of lights i think recognize.
could that be you, coming to meet me?

and it's true i've been away,
but now i'm coming home to stay.
is that too much to ask that that's you
coming to meet me?

and the plane touches down
i see relief in the faces all around me.

and i know that i said the wrong thing
i know i left it hanging by a string
but i'm hoping it's still there, hanging on.


he's at the service of the poets,
at the service of the oil men.
he's still king of the magnolia,
even though you can't see him.

and the buildings now are much too tall
cause modern times have changed it all
but i still remember when i was a kid.

and i remember thinking
that a prince would come and save me
swoop down on pegasus
to where i hid.



from Sweetheart, Keep Your Chin Up, released March 1, 2009
