SWEET SEBASTIAN
© Sarah M. Fulford, 2016

Oh sweet Sebastian
Why you asking
If you can back home

You missed the cactus flower
in it's final hour
Of a hundred years

Been a full turn of season
The desert's freezing
And the coyote howls

The desert bloom is always fragile
Give it time and watch it grow
If you turn away I might not be here
I don't have a century to grow

You said that I looked sweeter
Than the feeble teeter
of a fire's flame

But a flame that don't get tended
What's broken mended
Burns a house right down

I know you hear the highway howlin
Tires spin, blacktop growlin
Empty bottle, dying radio

So no sweet Sebastian
Don't start asking
If you can come back home

The desert bloom is always fragile
Give it time and watch it grow
If you turn away I might not be here
I don't have a century to grow

Oh, sweet Sebastian
Why you asking if you can come back home
Oh, sweet Sebastian
All I'm asking is you let me go

I know you hear the highway howlin
Tires spin, blacktop growlin
Empty bottle, dying radio
