I got rhythm
I got music
I got my girl
Open, close, open, close, open close, and outside
The doors slide shut silently behind me, and I'm on my way
I walk
My feet pick out a steady beat
I got rhythm
My hands are holding a package
I got music
I walk
Late at night, nobody is around
Nothing to get in the way of the beauty
You can smell the blossom of the trees
The warm wind
I walk
The air is soft, and ever so warm
I could go naked, but security takes a dim view
I stay clothed and legal instead
I walk
Into the darkness and out again
A metaphor for my life
Housed in the shadow of a tree
I walk
Downward, towards the bright lights
Towards my destination
Away from my home
I walk
The world is silent
Gates move without a sound
My feet are all that is heard
I got rhythm
My hands clutch my possession
I got music
I walk
I arrive at my destination
I'm sending my music to my girl
But not today, so I leave
I walk
I reach my new destination
Today I'll send my music to my girl
With a kiss, it's gone
My girl got my music
I walk
I don't go back the way I came
That's not why I've come here
So I move forward, not back
I walk
My journey turns to poetry and stories
In a self referential twist, I begin to create
When this is finished, you'll see what I made
I walk
Through the trees and over the grass
Between the buildings and along the road
Nobody to see me go, but that's not the point
I walk
The buildings are black and the sky purple
Crossed between the blue of night and the orange of light
A sign, an omen, or just a pretty color?
I walk
My girl's got my music
But I got rhythm
My feet tap out a tune as
I walk
I reach the crosswalk, without a moving car on campus
I stop and look both ways to enjoy the irony
When I know the way is clear
I walk
Back up the hill to home again
Through the darkness and out again
Back into the heat again
I walk
Open, close, open, close, open close, and inside
The doors slide shut silently behind me, and I'm back
I sit, I think, I write
I stop walking
