*** The Thief ***
I went down to Georgia, used the back roads every day
Counted headlights on towards midnight,
Counted cows and Sonic Drive-Ins during the day.

20 miles will get you nowhere, when you’re trying for 64
64 will get you somewhere, multiply by 10 and add a thousand more.

I found out, yeah I found out too late
I found out, yeah I found out too late.

Well, he could not be trusted, with my guitar or my life
Told me stories that were twisted,
Spread them out so smooth with the blade of a butter knife.

Took from me my last five dollars, and 22 more cents
When a thief decides to rob you,
You’ll be wondering how you’ll ever pay the rent.

60 seconds, then an hour, 24 make up a day
I waste them all while I keep driving
I could use a map but never find my way.

Well there’s sweetness in the summertime,
And cold winds in the fall
Eat that berry when it’s ripening,
You’ll be crying when you get no fruit at all.

I stayed on, yeah I stayed on too long
I found out, yeah I found out too late.

Lianne Smith New York

I write songs about standing in the middle of the road and wondering which way to go, about how others cheat us and how we cheat ourselves, about free-wheeling, bicycle riding, look-ma-no-hands exhilarations, and how it feels to say goodbye to summer.
