Yellow Bicycle

Just need that feeling
That same old feeling
At 10 years old 
Riding my yellow
Banana seat bicycle
That sweaty afternoon
I jumped on not sure 
Where I'd end up
Just needing that urge
To steer and go
Anywhere I wanted
Grabbing those handle bars
I jerked them left
Then jerked them right
Making sure it was me driving 
The streamers hanging 
From the rubber hand grips
Blew loud in the wind
The wind I was making
As I pedaled
And so I did pedal
Independence filling my chest
Years have passed
And I lost that feeling
The one my heart needs
To beat out my own path
That giddy stomach feeling
Of me deciding 
Where I want to go
