Questioning Everything

I was driving back into the city tonight

Portland’s skylight has always captured my heart

Trampled by Turtles’ song “Midnight on the Interstate” came on and my mind shifted to a year ago

I was so unsure about myself

About the woman I was with

and about probably every fucking thing that could possibly cross my mind

Flash forward and I’m walking into a reading at an art gallery

People here to see and listen to me

and I’m reading about her

What we had, what we were, and now what we are

Am I happier?

I’d like to think so

Given the chance I’d love to hold her one last time

As my set comes to an end

Tears in my eyes

My heart on my sleeve

I’ve never been more sure I’m where I belong
