Save What We Can

It's snowing
the wind's blowing
and I drive home knowing
I have no place to go

keep racing
through my mind
Wife lost her job
we fell behind
another one 
she couldn't find
How could I
have been 
so blind

I knew 
this day would come
but the mortgage folks said
they would give me some
more time ....

I turn the corner
and from my seat
see all our belongings
there on the street
I love that woman
she's so sweet
even now, through tears
with a hug she greets

The kids are at school
we are in luck
Save what we can
on the back of the truck

This feels like blues and the blues is nothing more than the truth laced with irony. There is the truth that life can be hard but the irony is that we still love each other and will never give up. Keep writing those blues brother 'cause sometimes we need them.
