in a different direction

I was writing songs

hoping the band could find a melody

wanting you to sing along

& nobody could hear the sweet words

I’d strung in a line for you

some thin thing about trying to be lovers

making the best of a poor start

maybe we’d make it be true

how the past don’t have to be repeated

though I could see a distant dim light

heading down that dark tunnel fast

& they brought in a different guy

could sing better throw out a faster lyric

as you went in a different direction

while I found another fleeting beauty

trying to make some thin thing last

like these sweet words never do
