angel in reverse

somewhere close to nowhere - down a track they call a highway
where the dust can nearly blind you - and the silence leaves you deaf
an old shed does for a hotel - a few sheets of rusting iron
no doors to shield the north wind - that blows hot as satan's breath

she was sitting by the window - gazing at the sunset
with a look that told of comfort - with her own company
we shared a beer and conversation - guess she knew what i was thinking
she said 'don't start seeing angels - you won't find one in me'

you can leave the world behind you
think love will never find you
fill your life with strangers
it's both a blessing and a curse
loneliness and drinking
they can cloud your thinking
you might find your angel, or an angel in reverse

we lay there all night talking - about how the world was crazy
but not one word or question - of what we'd done or where we'd been
out here the past don't matter - no-one talks about it
that way you can't be burdened - with what you don't know to begin

the firelight was dying - as the sun rose on the desert
i scratched around for words - i thought might make her want to stay
she said a heart's too easily broken - by words too easily spoken
what's promised in a moment - can haunt you all your days
