09 Aug 2016 – Song: In Your Rearview Mirror

When you’re out at night, do you remember?
Have the miles made memories much clearer?
A porch light passing, or a burning ember?
It’s just me there in your rearview mirror.

Windshield wipers beat the tears back faster.
Decades dust between us, am I dearer
when you look back at our brief disaster?
Is that me there in your rearview mirror?

A greener shade of grass, that’s what you chased.
You were clear, you never want me nearer.
Are memories of me filled with distaste?
Or am I staring from your rearview mirror?
