SOMETHING YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT
by John Seabrook
You ever feel like you're
Wandering down a lonesome highway,
Wondering if someone, to love,
Will again come your way?
Like a hobo hitchin a ride on a train,
With a destination unknown..
Like an adolescent seeking that first real love,
That life to him's ever shown.
Hoping to receive that one true chance,
To make your heart come alive..
Knowing that if it ever does come,
That in every day of your life you'd strive
To make it last like no other in the past.
For, there's lessons you have learned
To recognize between love and lies
And to avoid again getting burned.
There's still that naiveness that won't go away,
No matter how you try,
For, new love is always innocent,
Until something goes awry.
You never know which path to take
To seek love you wish to find,
And you always hope your eyes will be open,
Rather than jumping in half blind.
Though some bad memories still clutter your mind,
You know there is no doubt,
That though seeking love can be a painful thing,
It's something you can't live without.
