Campfire Blues

Hold tight
Twenty years in flames
Roll the dice
Nothing to lose
I got campfire blues

The lines of friendship
Had begun to fade
Maybe no longer engaged
Good night
There are no rules
I got campfire blues

Love is all around me
In all the right places
My proximity to you
Left me jaded
No longer sitting waiting for your news
I got campfire blues

You were the best
A father too
But I ain’t trendy
Or feeling friendly
What am I to do
When I got campfire blues
