Ten Cats With Only Fourteen Legs [REVISTED]

we’ll never walk through this city together
we’ll never get to know what else is out there
you should have seen what we had back then
we should have known what had been planned out for us

your bed is our favorite place with our eyes focused on
what is going on in the television and not enough in between us
and yet you are everything stuck between us like kernel of popcorn
in desperate need of being removed

We spent our summer together and we missed
our chances to eat ice cream under the summer heat
and complain about how much we hate it
and where our parents went wrong on behalf of our aging process

We gave up the idea of spending time on the
shore and take a classical sundown picture
to sit and fight over who was right
when the sun went down neither one of us had a clue

if I could play make believe with you I will be who
you want me to be so I can just make you happier
and if I could make you smile then I will feel lighter
but then I realize your becoming the type of crane that floats away

I wish I wasn’t always making you cry
some nights I hope that you don’t give up
but I can’t become the only one in your universe
and you can’t be the only star on stage

I’m not saying that you aren’t the greatest thing
I’m just saying that you aren’t the only thing there

I just hope that we will act like we fell in love
in a bookstore, and we will feel like our smiles
are part of a face lift
but we both know that your blood runs cold most nights

if you wanted me to say it clearer
I won’t ever forget our late night walks
but now you’ve got me paralyzed and I can’t get back on my feet
