Guess This Is Me

I woke up
and found myself in someone else’s shoe
The shoe did not fit
Wondering if I’ll get back to where
my feet belong
Its a long road
A long road to get there

They called out his name
He looked like me
But he wasn’t the same
Where did he come from
and why is he wearing my shoe

She said to me
you put that shoe on
all I could do was shrug
and agree
how can I explain
what I can’t understand

Jacobs ladder has been rolled down to me
I’m climbing aboard my ship
I’ll be captain of this ship
and I’ll take no lip
We’ll sail towards the one
and reach the end at nights setting sun
