Lyrics

Timbuktu

Written By: Jack Schueler

I might have lost site of my objective
But I never did sell my soul
It’s so hard to gain perspective
When everybody else I know
Is perfect from head to toe

So I went walking down on Main Street
Trying to tweak my point of view
In every town I see the same street
Part of me could stay here forever
But today I’m just passing through

A million miles until tomorrow
Then tomorrow is suddenly here
I never begged or stole, but I borrowed
It’s not that I didn’t want to pay you
I just haven’t seen you in years

I got 24 hours on the road back home
I got blood shot eyes because I drive straight through
I took a shower with my cologne
I got old friends greet me with a smile
“Welcome back to Timbuktu”
