Meridian

by Rebecca Loebe

 

i've got half a tank of gas, sun spots on the dash

a shirt that smells a bit too much like you

i've got a lover i don't love, a heart too tired to bluff

a throne that i don't think i can use

 

i have tried to tell me friends that i'm aiming for the fences

still i'm heavy with the sense i could've been happy

in Meridian

 

well we lost that demon fight one long wreckless night

when the sun came up i saw had to go

i've got a lover who don't love me, guess that's just what i deserve, see

the symmetry of reaping what you sow

 

i have tried to tell my self that i don't owe no one else

still i'm aching with the sense i could've been happy

in Meridian

 

and do you miss me, Mississippi?

Did you see how long i stalled,

Oh I let the engine idle, gave the light an extra cycle

then tore my eyes from your door

 

next time that I fall, let it be hard or not at all

pull me up swinging from the dirt and smile along

tell me about your kids and wife

the house, the trees, the tidy life

we always knew you've land on

 

i won't stay too long, I’ve learned when to move on

just had to see what could have been

to see you happy in Meridian

so glad you're happy in Meridian
