How Could I Do That?
Is there enough room for you in my life
Like the air inside the rivers of a sidewalk
The vacuum in my day dreaming mind
The time I sleep or wash my clothes
So much emptiness I cannot fill on my own
Would you ever live with love like that
Must you be inside everywhere I walk
What believes in other things besides talk
Or doesn’t care at all for meaningless time?
I know somebody who lost someone deep
What would it take to feel that much sorrow
There is so much I must foolishly believe
Fantasy and lust to imagine and conquer
But what then when you become real to me
Will I tear you down like the sea air on metal
Leaving you standing a memory of the past
When being new was what could never last
How could I after watching her cry so long?
