Another Norwegian Bus Ride

Another valley road past deep, dark waters

On another bus rolling down endless meandering asphalt

White lines chasing windows – they can never keep up

Because this rolling moss laughs at stones alone left at home

Left to chew on human bones in the danger zone.

No reflections in our eyes tonight, the water too turbulent

Too broken by green broken limbs on crumbling valley walls

Wooden houses teeter on stilts waving in the wind

Waving at the dirty sheep all asleep in the misty morning sun

One more kid on the run trying to write words while twisting

And bending on more rolling wheels with a cleared mind

With new feelings renewed from mountain solitude

The longing for romantic love was trapped within without being able

To begin to realise that the effort had been lost – lost and unable

To cross a breaking bridge swinging over white waters in the conscience

With every breath I draw her closer with every mile I have pushed away

Without being able to say what had to be said, left dead

And buried 6000 feet deep under towering landscapes covered

In jagged rocks slashing at the wanderer’s feet lost in the wilderness.

This love I thought absent had been stored in my fingers, hiding

In the knuckles being bent only so far as the stars could blink

In awe on grey dawns through endless skies that rain nothing

But jazz blue moons.
