That One Time–Every Time

Go on and tell the future with your vague words

Nothing is ever straightforward

Can I even count on your words?

I’ve been beaten to death

By some meaningless breaths

Saying whatever comes to mind

In your heart somewhere, could you find

The courtesy to mean what you say, and say what you mean.

So nothing remains to be unseen

Days turned to weeks

They went by so fast

Weeks turned to months

I can’t even remember the past

But time is irrelevant

Like the room with an elephant

All too common words have been spoken

“Let’s take it slow” All good chi has been broken

The next step is imminent,

Or more likely in a minute

How do you do? So long. Goodbye!
