Six days of 'escaping' [reality] in California
Only to come home and have [reality] waiting for me
Like the harshness of freezing wind on your face on a bitterly cold day
Who was I kidding to think
That I could truly push the pause button on [reality]?
Life stands still for no one
And neither do the consequences
Am I selfish to think that I should have had a few hours reprieve?
Was it too much to ask just to have some time to share my week...
In addition to the rest of life that couldn't wait to share itself with me?
I guess so...
