The Words are a Blur

Too hot to think
The words are a blur
The lines on the highway
Race by
 
AC crapped out
Radio did too
I can't get my thoughts
To run straight
 
Nothing makes sense
The signs all point
In the wrong direction
I'm running out of gas
 
Aha! What's that ahead?
A light
A very bright light
I'm so confused
 
It's not getting closer
It's moving away
Just like the memory
Of snow-capped hills
 
The memory of cool
Of cold and of frost
The chill of the past
Becomes the future
 
We are close, my friends
Closer than you know
To a summer long gone
And winters frigid blast
 
Oh complain we will do
Of heat and of cold
And in our bitter rants
Our words are a blur
