Galapagos

You can close up all the windows
But don’t lock yourself away
Thinking back upon the days
We had nothing
But knew it all
Travelling nowhere
And I loved you all the more

They say we crawled out of the ocean
Neither fish nor fowl
Somewhere out among the Galapagos
We had nothing
Not even the good book
We didn’t know better
But she loved us all it took and more
When she tried to set us free
With her six string poetry
Turn the dream into reality

We’ll come back again next summer
As we’ve always done before
And perchance we’ll realize
There is nothing
We don’t have
Couldn’t get better
And she loved us all along
When she tried to set us free
With her six string poetry
Wouldn’t it be good if we agreed?
