It never made sense
Being pulled this way
Getting pushed that way
Maybe the wind made it sway one day
Like a wand on a yo-yo
Where it went
I still do not know.

Standing far away
Until moving in close
Passing time until the next edit
Should have never even read it
Now we are too close
Taking a step back
Now we are too far away.

It is a constant push and pull
A changing of the diction
To make it feel like fiction
And it is a shame
But there is no one to blame
Tie your knots with string
Who knows what the next line will bring.

Maybe we are lucky
To see this and that
Pulling a rabbit from the hat
To come and go
Bailing out before the next show
But it only left us weary
That is my only theory.

About Paul

I think of my blog as an all-you-can-read buffet. There's something for everyone and complimentary mints at the door as you leave.

    Love the lines:

    PS – super sad video.

    I like this. Brain Fallon is also amazing. I saw him live a few months ago.

    One of my friends is obsessed with him and took me to his concert. He’s great live and is super laid back. He would just stop and talk to the audience between songs. Go see him if you ever get the chance!
