CLOSE CALL

Written by Jay Lewallen

 

The sky lit up and knocked me off course

I heard the thunder, felt the lightnings’s force

When I came to, there wasn’t any pain

Just a ringing in my ears, and the angels sweet refrain

 

Close Call…It happened in a flash

It was a Close Call…Could have been my last 

 

A hot desert sun, was playing tricks on me

A cool distant mirage, was shaded by some trees

A twist of fate, led me down that path

It’s a small miracle, I ever made it back

 

It was a Close Call…It happened in a flash

Close Call…Could have been my last

Close Call…Didn’t go according to the plan

Close Call…Do what you can

 

Was it a vision, or just a dream?

Not sure I was awake, or somewhere in between?

My friend slipped away, into to the dead of night

Reappeared as a prophet, dressed all in white

 

Close Call…It happened in a flash

Close Call…Could have been my last 

Close Call…Now I understand

Close Call…You gotta live life while you can
