the Nowhere Place

take me to a place
where the wind doesn't wait
for little birds to wake and sing
before the breeze gets stirring

take me to a place
where our steps will leave no trace
no way to travel back to where
we were when storms stole all the air

take me to a place
that has no name
somewhere the grass is long
and silence hums a lonely song

take me to a place
in the middle of the night
when stars above shine brighter
as the sky turns slowly lighter

take me to a place
without a single spot of blame
somewhere I can feel happy
when the sunshine touches me

take me to a place
that doesn't age
I want to walk on untouched stones
that ring hollow of old bones

take me to a place
with nothing to hate
somewhere that sorrow can't come near
no reason to shed a single tear

take me to a place
where the wide open space
welcomes imagination
and subtle creation

take me to a place
where in the place
of grey and white and black
is color, and we'll never go backyhyhhhhhhhhhhh
