Trees In The Woods

from The Leaves by Short Hand



Driving down to one point
Or another on a map
Sound for sound the smallest ounce
Of worry like a trap
Like trees in the woods

Towns and towns roaring

The face in the mirror contorts
And it always looks the same
Like trees in the woods

Storm on the highway
The family is huddled in the car
Windshield wipers wipe your eyes
Clouds beneath the stars
Like trees in the woods

The map of the past
The skeleton key in the clock
The person you were a lucky fossil
In a lucky rock
Like trees in the woods
