Making Meaning

Well this love’s forbidden
But your fruit is sweet
And that first taste I took it
Knocked me off my feet

You rode into town
On the arm of your man
Falling in love
Was not part of my plan

But the sundress you wore
It rode up your thighs
And when you spoke
You spoke with your eyes

Our paths they crossed
When all here was wrong
Then our lips met
We knew that was gone

This planet’s spinning
And time keeps moving
They say we’re all dying
So where’s the meaning

We may be sinning
But this town is drowning
And if it’s all ending
Let’s make some meaning

We drove through towns
In the cab of my truck
You pointed to families
Down on their luck

We talked of driving
That truck out west
Head for the plains
Put this love to the test

You said, “Why does fate
Need to be so cruel,
And turn a desperate man
Into a fool?”

“Let’s go to the woods,”
You said with a grin.
“I need you to wash me
Over with sin”

This planet’s spinning
And time keeps moving
They say we’re all dying
So where’s the meaning

We may be sinning
But this town is drowning
And if it’s all ending
Let’s make some meaning
