The Lonely Highway

Wish I could fly to you † †  
but what if there is no other choice † † †  
Driving my budget vehicle † † † †
with a compact backpack † † †  
and a navy-blue notebook † † †  
I traverse † † † †
from the earth to universe † † †  
from Taiwan to Venus † † †  
† † † †
I promised that     
never let you shed a tear     
therefore, I put my car in gear     
The view outside fades away † † †  
images of you come my way † † †  
memories, passions, loneliness † † †  
running along the highway † † †  
 
This highway has been frosty † † † †
Athens, Dallas, Los Angeles † † †  
itís snowing in every city † † †  
At a strange spine-biting street † † † †
my shaking hand spilt a hot coffee † † †  
left a scarlet scar on my knee † † † †  
† † † †
I am like Saint-Exupery and the Little Prince † † †  
looking for some precious faiths  
somewhere beyond the extreme†††  
something lies in my dream†††  
I know they are in you † † †  
and I believe it's true † † †  
† † † †
I am like an ancient pilgrim † † † †
across the Arabian Desert † † † †
A believer who forgot beliefs after birth † † †  
bleeding oneís knees † † †  
staggering through the journey † † † †
strewn with glass pieces † † †  
to reach the sacred place † † †  
† † † †
On the lonely highway † † †  
somewhere, still far way † † †  
moonshine, sunrise, sunset † † † †
Itís snowing at every station † † †  
I am wondering † † † †
you must be my destination
