Sounds from the kitchen
Rattling in my head
You have given up
All but gone to bed
Cows in the paddock
Praying for overnight rain
Voices in my head
Pestering me again

Take me on a train ride
Far away from here
Send me back in time
To when you held me near
Nearer than today
When it all seems just too hard
Where crickets sound a warning
Of danger in my yard

Perhaps it’s not too late
Only time can say
Stay for one more night
Give me one more day
