I'm walking around with words in my head
I can't wait to sit so I can write them instead
I'm walking around with words that must be read

I'm walking around with poems in my head
I can't wait to stop so I can read them instead
I'm walking around with poems that must be heard

I'm making my way to the road up ahead
I know I can't stop till I'm finally there
I'm walking around with dreams I need to share

I'm walking around with love in my heart
I can't wait to stop so I can pour it all out
I'm walking around overhwhelmed and burning

I'm walking around with songs in my head
.....I'm running...............I'm running..........

Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
