NEARLY MISSED


While looking at my feet
At a crack in the sidewalk
An old tin can by the side of the road

I nearly missed a rainbow
I nearly missed a sunset
I nearly missed a shooting star going by

While studying a brand new hole in my sneaker
And finding a quarter and an old bus token

I nearly missed a rainbow
I nearly missed a sunset
I nearly missed a shooting star going by

Looking down at the ground means you know where you're goin'
No head-up-in-the-clouds to lead you astray
But you can never have any kind of dreams that way

While looking at my feet
At a crack in the sidewalk
An old tin can by the side of the road

I nearly missed a rainbow
Don't wanna miss that sunset
I wouldn't miss a shooting star going by

Passing me by

Going right by
