10 Kilometers

If I get on my bike.
Work my legs along the path that is a friend to the railway.
Keep a good energy flow while I fill my lungs with clean air.
In about 20 minutes I'l have traveled 10km.

Last night you were 10 kilometers up..

If I get on my yacht.
Cast off with full sails and a willing breeze.
Aim at the second star on the right with dreams of bubbles and splashes.
In about 1 hour I'll be 10km closer to that star.

Last night you were 10 kilometers up..

If sit in my ute.
Strapped in, hands on the wheel, feeling the fake power in my right foot.
Tools rattling on the back, wondering what I've forgotten as I head to tasks.
In about 12 minutes I'll be 10 km closer to earning a dollar.

Last night you were 10 kilometers up..
and closer to Paris..
