1-6 In the Middle

I’m standing in the middle of the room wondering what to say
I’m staring in the depths of my gloom wondering what you would have said
And I wonder

Where did you go and I think of how you held your head up high
And I wonder
Where we’ll all go when we’re dead to the sky, do we fly?

I’m standing in the middle of the road wondering which side to try
I’m staring in the sun at noon in this New Mexico sky
I’m standing in the middle of my life wondering what to do
I’m staring down an empty glass and I’m missing you
And I wonder


I’m standing in the middle of the field picking flowers for you
I’m staring through the sands of time I can still see you
I’m waking in the middle of the night with a dream of you
You’re walking through a tunnel of light
I’m so happy for you
And I wonder…

(I think we fly)
