Oasis

Written by Nicolette Good. Copyright 2019.

While I was sleeping
I finally got around
To doing some thinking
I don’t think that way now

I’ve got to hand it to you
You looked so real
But I’ve been running through you
You disappear like an oasis

You fired a question
From the tip of your tongue
But there’s something I’m missing
Is it the bullet or the gun?

I’ve got to hand it to you
You looked so real
But I’ve been running through you
You disappear like an oasis
Like an oasis
Like an oasis

Just when I thought I had it
You fire a shot
Semiautomatic afterthought
And I saw it coming
A mile away
So I took off running
You slipped away
