“For Air” by Lee Allison


In my mind you are a dream
That talks through a computer screen
After she finishes all the ice cream
A Thai girl only seventeen

Sometimes I think that you're a ghost
Who doesn't know her bodies lost
And haunts the waves of MSN
Until she finds her home again

But now I think you'll be there soon
For Laab Moo and Tom Yam Kung
To smile with family and with old friends
When your far away adventure ends

Sometimes when shopping at all the stores
Or after pushing Emmy out your door
Take a moment for your thoughts to stray
And remember your friends in the USA
