a million stars are shining imaginary dawn
dark and light together before the stars move on
head against the pillow pillow on the door
snuggle in the back seat fall asleep once more
we love to go, away we went on a drive to the next surprise
destination irrelevant follow stars to a grey sunrise
gas station’s quiet fill up the car
get juice and sandwiches before we get too far
but still we’re on the way before the sky is light
imaginary dawn spilling from the night
who are all these people up before it’s day?
where are they all going slipping through the grey?
do they love to travel always moving on?
we won’t ever tire of it imaginary dawn
welcome rest stop barn exhibits and a snack
always something new to see whenever we come back
birds and bugs and meadows historic marker plaques
run across the grass read the nature facts
Tea HQ and Tucson Best waffle you ever ate
Yellowstone and forests nearly every state
will you travel all your life alone or with a friend?
the imaginary dawn is a journey with no end
