Between A Rock And You

 

I’d rather burn on a Sahara dune

Or drown in Indian blue

‘Cause it’s kinder on a frozen mountain

Than between a rock and you

 

Ever since the first chapter

In warm primordial ooze

Man has a loved his women

Even more than cars and booze

 

Chasing them around house

Around the village square

Cross borders and cross oceans

Even when they have no prayer

 

I can’t define obsession

Seems it’s basic to the core

Like caribou migration

And stronger than a war

 

Is it born within the skull

Or somewhere further south

Where latitudes are tropical

And I love you bites your mouth

 

I think we’ve lost direction

We broke our GPS

Sometimes things just don’t work out

And you’re cleaning up the mess

 

But you can’t catch a dying heart

From sneezing on your mate

Or going out without your coat

It takes a certain hate

 

And that one special woman

You call Mrs. Right

Has crafted a persona

Bookended with smite

 

So listen to this chorus

Before you share your heart

For this is not a warning

Just giving a head start
