I’m New Here

–Gil Scott-Heron died yesterday

I’m New Here

I did not become someone different
that I did not want to be
but I’m new here; show me around

No matter how far wrong you’ve gone
you can always turn around

I met a woman in  a bar
told her I was hard to get to know
and near impossible to forget
She said I had an ego on me the size of Texas
but I’m new here and I forget
does that mean big or small?

No matter how far wrong you’ve gone
you can always turn around
.
I’m shedding plates like a snake
It may be crazy
but I’m a closest thing I have
to a voice of reason

Turn around turn around turn around
and you may come full circle
and be new here again

turn around turn around turn around
and you may come full circle
and be new here again
.
