My Two Feet Only

Wrote this while I was waiting for the hallway to dry so I could make some dinner. : )

I’m just sitting here counting headlights
Wishing I could run out and catch some like fireflies
Bottle up the jar and bring them inside
All the while telling them “It’ll be all right,
I just need to borrow some of your light tonight.”

Then I’d pop off the lid and set them free
Singing “While you’re here, would you shine for me?
Because this house is lonely with my two feet only
And your shine brings the happy I seek.”

Well, they’d twinkle and shine for a little while
And somewhere in the dark, I’d break through and smile
But then I’d remember I was only wishing it so
As I sit by my window, watching headlights flow
I tell you, the clock has never ticked so slow

Nobody out there knows I’ve been waiting here
Nestled back in the red that resembles my fear
And this house is lonely with my two feet only
And the shine that was here disappeared

I’ve been watching their shapes come and go for so long
Yet each silhouette that appears is always so wrong
Yes, this house is lonely with my two feet only
So I sat down to put my heart in a song
Baby, I’ve been waiting for you all along.
