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,
I found you.
