Misplaced
© 2011 Mark Allen

I want to drive this two-lane road as far as it will go
And wind up in a tender town where people say hello
I want to run away with my two feet and fourteen wings
Searching for a single truth that only true love brings

I want to sing a duet with a voice that never fails
Crooning across the clef in a bed of satin scales
I want to be a porpoise at the center of the sea
And find another lonely fin who wants to swim with me

CHORUS:
I know Iím dreaming, the romantic that I am
Looking for the values awake when time began
Could I be the only one lost in this open space
My soul belongs to heaven, the rest of me
Is misplaced

BRIDGE:
I canít quit my craving, any more than I can hear
A reason for the living to one day disappear
If my faith were stronger, would I be happy as I am
Thereís always something missing
Is God really listening?
Am I really dreaming?

I want to walk with Jesus on the Via Dolorosa
And comfort Mother Mary with the scriptures in my heart
I wanna be Adam before truth is taken from the tree
And smile at the serpent believing Eve believes in me

CHORUS:
I know Iím dreaming, the romantic that I am
Looking for the values awake when time began
Could I be the only one lost in this open space
My soul belongs to heaven, the rest of me
Is misplaced
