I wrote the original version of this poem (even more depressing that this new version) in September of 1981. I was living near Vancouver, going through a bad break-up, and the world in general looked pretty grim.

As I Walk Across the Road

I know it’s time to move ahead
And leave my dreams behind
For all the things I longed for
Were only in my mind,
So as I walk across the road
Into a different door
The visions I have lived on
Will haunt my days no more.

Never have I felt this way,
That everything’s been lost,
It’s nice to live on for a dream
But I can’t pay the cost,
So as I walk across the road
I’ll turn off all the lights
And vow to never cry again
On long and lonely nights.

Time has never liked me much
It’s never been a friend,
But scars I thought too deep to heal
I now know how to mend,
So as I walk across the road
Into another place
I’ll just ignore the wetness of
This water on my face.
