Fine

*link to this being sung at the end of poem*

Your place is empty, the paintís faded thin
For a few weeks youíre twenty, then the barsíll let you in  
And are you alone? Have you made any friends?  
Iím not all that busy. Sometimes I just pretend  
 
I try to go out, bought tickets for a show  
but at the last minute decided I donít want to go alone  
How much I loveís always so disproportionate  
If you made me yours would it be so unfortunate?  
 
How many meís
Do I have to be  
Til life decides Iím ready  
For the you that wonít leave?
 
And I wonít waste time  
Fitting you in my life  
(But if you come around  
Well I guess thatíd be fine)
 
You say the time  
will pass by in the blink of an eye  
Now itís so quiet  
and you probably donít even realize  
 
That I canít wait forever - I íll be by your side  
But a home with no centerís just an off-track lonely mine
But just like an ember needs life to survive
Or just like the weather, it changes in time
 
How many meís  
Do I have to be til  
I decide I donít need
You to help me fall asleep?  
 
I wonít waste your time  
I still fantasize  
(But if you change your mind, well I guess thatíd be fine)

This is actually a song I wrote yesterday, if youíre interested in hearing the poem with music Ill leave the link. Maybe it might be cool to compare the difference in feeling you get with vs without...
