you might see him

you might see him
(with apologies and thanks to david mead for the idea while listening to the second song off his indiana record.)

you might see him
pulling up to your house
hoping that you're still there
seeing that you're gone

you might see him
praying on your doorstep
hoping someone's listening
feeling all alone

and you may have these questions
these feelings that don't go away
from sources external
that you can't deny
and who am i
to pick a fight with you

you might see him
helping friends in need
sponsoring a poor child
giving it all away

you might see him
crying on the drive home
while talking to his father
feeling all alone

and you may have these questions
these feelings that don't go away
from sources external
that you can't deny
and who am i
to pick a fight with you

he might be perfect
he might be godsent
he might be a mistake
he might be me

you might see him
unable to eat
hoping with a cold sweat
that you haven't given up

you might see him
some time from now
maybe holding your hand
maybe from afar
