lyrics

She

I try to give it my best Whitman tilt,
but she can see right past my hat
she knows who does the looking – that's me –
and who of the two of us is getting looked at:

she.
she'll either be
the life or the death of me

and I swear the very next thought is "O. My. God.
is it possible I have never been with a dancer?"
I shake myself with the answer as I gasp
into some master mirror: "man, you haven't
even ever been with a monster!"

not like she.
she'll either be
the life or the death of me
so please - oh, please
scrape me off of this bathroom floor
get me back on to my knees, at least

I try to live it my most Cageian life
but she will move right past my time
she knows who does the catching up now – that's me –
and who escapes that path or dies:

she.
i thought she could’ve seen
what we could’ve been

but it's nice sometimes to know you've missed the train
there may not be one back this way again
it's nice sometimes to know you've missed the train
to think to yourself there may not come a train again
you stand there at the station, your face up to the rain
and you’re just thinking to yourself, over & over & over again
but it's nice sometimes to know you missed that train
there may well be one back this way again,
but not like she.
