OKIE

It’s been a while since I slept in a bed and not a couch, spread
myself and made love to you.
It’s been ok, sleeping fast, learning songs and running high. Dusty
clothes, dusty appetites too.

Okie for a little while. Feeling pretty good.
Okie for a little while, I’m still running… back to you

It’s been a trip, it’s been a blast. I missed your lips and the rest.
Come here close, kiss me gentle and kind.
I drank my fill every night, made some friends and said goodbyes,
now I’m back, hoping those lips are mine.

Okie for a little while. Feeling pretty cool.
Okie for a little while, I’m still running… back to you

There were times when I wish that I’d taken the dog. This ain’t no
place for a woman like you.
It’s been a while since I slept in a bed and not a couch, spread
myself to do what we do.

Okie for a little while. Feeling pretty good.
Okie for a little while, I’m still running… back to you
