Chased to the stars 

I was chased by the cops  

chased clear down to Mississippi 

and then chased clear up to the stars 

there I got lost. 

I got lost in the turquoise in your eyes 

and the scarlet of your lips 

and the sing song of your voice 

and the gingerness of your hair 

and the rough feel of your hand 

and the wrincles in your face 

and the smile that cracked the whole world open. 

I got lost in the world, 

but then 

I found you.
