Whenever I catch a glimpse of you,
I promise to write you down…
But I seldom do, I seldom write you down.
And when I try to write you down,
You don’t come out right.
My words take over and well…
well my words take over…
like now, taking over and making you mundane.
Maybe I shouldn’t try to write you down…
Maybe I shouldn’t start with maybe.
Maybe is a copout…maybe not.
dot, dot, dot…that’s the place for contemplation.
dot, dot, dot…that’s the place for pause.
dot, dot, dot…that’s a synonym for the rest of it.
but no one reads just dot, dot, dot…
so I include words from time to time.
I include words to try and write you down,
when I catch a glimpse of you.
