Dirty Ol' Dawn

Dirty ol' dawn
another city another sunrise
another all night talk
with a not so stranger

We shared more than stories
but not as much as love
and not as much
as we were looking for

I'll call you tomorrow
we say walking away
into a bright morning suburb
already searching for someone

We play cards until late
and talk around and about
but not of, it
and definitely not, of

That is for some other day
some other place
some other time
under each other
and under yet another
dirty ol' dawn.
