 once upon a time

Here we are on the road again
All we got for company is a dust covered bottle of wine.
We’ve run outa time.Got no place to go.
Just a bottle in hand and a long dusty road.
Seems to m, we got a long way to go.
No stopping off place on the road to God knows where
Only company is this dusky dust covered bottle of wine.
Lost everything, but time. We got a lot of that.
Only hope is a place to lie down, and find comfort 
Curled up in a ditch to watch as  twilight slowly fades.
Dreamed a dream as I tilt this old bottle to an ebony sky.
Who’d have thought we’d end up in a ditch with a dusty bottle of wine.
Played society’s game of life and this is what I find
Ending up clutching this dusky dust covered bottle of wine.
Only fingerprints on it are mine. It’s keeping me company
Staring down the long roadway to God knows where.
Can’t look back. Ain’t nothing there
All I got is the road and a bottle of wine
As mentioned before, I've run out of time
