I thought I might change

I know you probably expected it


We've all heard that feelings are fluid;

that you can learn to love someone


Compassion and patience

I'm sure some people have those virtues


Still, it turns out what they said wasn't true

I could care less.



Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.

Doesn't mean that much to me,
To mean that much to you.

Old Man - Neil Young







No, I have known all along
that you prefer your solitude

You vowed to be alone
and yet I tempted you

When you were making that vow
I was formulating a prayer

To the Beloved, to fall in true love
and I wasn't sure I believed

anyhow. So I thought I might as well

I prayed and prayed, daily, longing

When you showed up, lightning struck

I thought what a fool I am
neglecting to ask that I be loved too

And the Beloved sits in heaven and hell
laughing at us both
