In This Limbo
I’m trapped in this limbo cave
Between here now and being there
Like being between the break of dawn
And making your morning debut
Like starting your breakfast fair
And the larders completely bare
Like being showered and cleansed
And doing your spruce for no-one at all
Like being ready for today
And there’s no tomorrow ’til fall
My time’s standing still here in limbo
And my patience is wearing away
Like the sunset and its extended dusk
And there’s only that vacant twilight zone
Like going to that luncheon date
And there’s no girl on her chair
Like travelling to town at night
And the streets are dark and empty
Like they’re all hiding from you
And waiting for your midnight showdown
Like being in this limbo cave
And no-where to go, no-where at all
