Before I go

Take me before I go
drive fast before we slow
wet skin all kinds of dope
take me before I choke
can’t look up now
just like a dog
I remember walking on that log
tripping through the water
skipping stones to get me higher
laughing like a troubadour
the kites in skies they set my fire
burning down what has begun
take me before it’s over
take me before I’m gone
