Maybe the stars don’t shine at night
They are an illusion in your mind.
Maybe I’m simpler than some women
Or maybe I’m really not that blind.
I spent a hundred days trying to convince him
Then six hundred trying to mend.
So many more licking wounds that don’t heal
With one infatuated friend.
Maybe I don’t know what your motive is
Perhaps I really do
Playing along is part of the game
Depending on what you knew.
Destiny meets with fate
At the end of a long dark road
I’m not the one to judge your actions
Nor the one to weigh your load.
In moments when I should have screaming
I’ve found myself quite mute.
In moments I should have been more quiet
I’m a shilling gotten in ill repute.
There are scores of words I don’t know
I’ve never looked them up at all
There is moment I knew my life was caving
Though I refused to acknowledge the fall.
Been objectionable on my best days
Hid away on my worst
Thought I did terribly once
Found out I came in first.
The expression I give in typical moments
Leads one to believe I’m not kind
I’m like the diamond that is still coal
Far before it’s cut and shined.
Walked on a thousand roses once
Then said I couldn’t feel the thorns
Showed everyone this magnificent halo
Forgot to mention the horns.
