Newark

Newark

Not a dime to my name,
and still I’m on the last train
to Newark,
or wherever she may be.

I’ve had a million guesses,
but not a million yeses.
I’ve had my share of no’s
but never a maybe.

GIVE ME A LOVE
that’s gonna love me back.
Give me a night to own
that isn't always black.
Give me a one-way ticket;
at least give me that.
I’ll make it to her one day,
wherever my love's at.

Now I’m not a lucky person,
but I guess it could be worse than
knowing what I’ve earned is
exactly what I’ve got.

And still I’m only guessin’
that I’ve
never learned my lesson.
And still I’m knowing less than
whatever I’ve been taught

Please GIVE ME A LOVE
so I can make it all I’ve got.

Praying all alone, I'm
all alone in black.
I say “Take what I may own,
but don’t
take what I may lack!”

'cause that’s all I've ever wanted
and EVERYTHING I am.
I may not always run or crawl,
but I know I'll always stand

on this train to Newark
or somewhere in an airport
or somewhere standing on
the edge of all my dreams...

as silence tells
its secrets
and darkness
never keeps it,
I'm lonely on this train
hearing silence scream.

GIVE ME A LOVE -
for that's my only dream.
